Photos I took during the full moon lunar eclipse September 27, 2015. This moon is also a ‘supermoon‘ because the moon is at its closest approach to earth (the orbital perigee). The blood red color of the eclipse is because the sunlight refracted around the earth lighting the moon has had all but the reddish colors ‘filtered’ out and is often called a blood moon. The next one of these supermoon blood moons will occur in 2033.
Was introduced to a new place to hike. Started out overcast but ended in brilliant sun. Lovely oaks, wide meadows, panoramic views. A very good day!
The question in this week’s challenge (“What subject keeps you coming back?”) had me scratching my head until it occurred to me that recently I have been (ahem) stuck on cacti (prickly pear to be specific). Here are some examples for your aMUSEment.
The bearded iris is a showy flower and some, like this one, have vivid colors.
Open is the new envelop 🙂
A bit of wind… Crack! Forces of nature.
A sunrise treat for the early bird!
There are, no doubt, some early birds in those trees but I didn’t see them. Too mesmerized by the impressive sunrise sky! It appeared and then went away in just a few minutes. I was glad to be up early and able to grab the camera in time to catch an image of this morning show to share with you.
