Did I ever see a moon to howl at .. but in the midst of being caught by surprise that this event was happening (many many DUH ? moments in my life have been happening lately .. poor Teza and probably Deborah from GreenTheater have wondered about me as well) .. in any case .. here is my explanation ?
I was caught off guard .. if I had seen this event happening earlier I would have taken pictures while the sky was still lighter and I might have had more definition with the sky as the background to this amazing moon .. and apparently Mars might have been a visual treat as well .. that is if my brain cells had kicked in ?
It was so spectacular this picture does it an injustice but I wanted to show the whole show ? for a point of referance ?
Much to my amazement .. while in full panic mode of "where the hell is scenic night mode?"!!!! on my camera.
Many clicks and curses (yes .. sorry but in the heat of the moment it has been known to happen .. and yet in other not so heated moments as well, no excuses .. go figure .. can you say MENOPAUSE ??"
In any case .. I finally found said mode and clicked away .. the sky was not as black as this but the camera has to make up for these problems .. it has to create "slight of sight" if you will, so we can see the desired object more clearly ... and this was one desired object .. I was in total rapture standing out in bare feet and fluffy robe breathing like some kind of tortured asthmatic wolf-woman due to insanely bad head/chest combo cold from hell .. but it was worth it .. it was amazing to see the moon hung in the sky looking so stunning.
Look for your "Wolf-moon" it will be a precious moment .. you will feel something indescribable I promise !
