Harvest Moon Sky


Last night was the harvest moon, so I thought I would try and get some photos of the moon. Unfortunately the weather – and some other obligations – were not cooperating. As the moon came over the mountains it was hidden by clouds.

Before heading to bed near midnight I went to turn off the outside light; but, when I hit the switch it actually turned the lights on. It was so bright outside from the full moon I actually though the porch light was already lit. I went outside and saw this beautiful, bright sky lit entirely lit by the moon. So, of course, I ran inside and grabbed my camera and tripod.

Here are a few other shots of the sky, moon and clouds I snapped over a few minutes.
