Blue Moon

This past weekend we had a beautiful blue moon. I really wish that the name blue moon was a descriptive one. How cool would it be to see an actual blue colored moon?

I wanted to get out early to photograph it as it came up, but I was unable to. I did catch it a bit later, behind a few whispy nighttime clouds.

  1. Wouldn't an actual blue moon be amazing? your pic is still gorgeous though!

  2. I googled 'blue moon' and the deal is that, if indeed anyone saw an actual blue moon, it was probably due to volcanic ash or other pollutant in the atmosphere...

  3. Great shot! When the blue moon came up at my house, it was actually bright orange.

  4. Great capture of the moon!

  5. Awesome capture of the moon! It really has been beautiful this month! Hope you have a great weekend! Happy SWF!!

  6. Oh, this is stunning! Your photo is so sharp and clear.

  7. Love the clouds you were able to capture as well!
    Terrific shot!

  8. I love your moon shot. You captured the moon in all its glory. Nicely done.

  9. Yes, the clouds really enhance the photo. Very nice!

  10. Nice to see you have made a shot of the blue moon too.
    Thanks for sharing and enjoy your weekend.

  11. Blue or not, your picture with the wispy clouds is beautiful! :)

  12. That was my first thought too a "blue" moon ^_^ Is there another blue moon?


  13. Great shot!! Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.

  14. Been thinking about that myself. Blue moon should be cool! But i love your moon shot too. Kind of mysterious...
