{foto friday} — it’s a blue moon!

31 Aug

a blue moon occurs when there are TWO full moons in one month.  we had a full moon on august 1st – {uhm, only the most emotional full moon i’ve been through to date} – and now this evening, we will have another full moon.  it will technically be full in the wee hours of the night, but it ought to be quite the display in the big sky.  last night after i watered the garden, i looked up and saw it.  i ran in to grab my camera, got distracted by my cute cat, only to come back to see that the moon was hiding behind some clouds. some COOL clouds!

i work late tonight, so i probably won’t have time to take photos of the full moon, but i thought i’d share these images from last night – as i precariously stood on a patio chair, nervously gripping my neighbour’s fence in hopes of not falling or shaking too much.  shooting at 1600 ISO is NOT my favourite thing ever.  but, sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do to get some good shots…

super cool clouds…

talk about the “silver lining in the clouds” …

then she started to come out of hiding…

but it was just a little too dark to really capture it…

so next time, i’ll just request the night off from work…

and you better believe i’ll be drinking a blue moon tonight, too! 🙂

i’m not feeling as wacky emotional today as i typically do on full moon days. well, actually – i tend to get a little nutty the days leading up to a full moon. my body is in rhythm with the moon’s cycle, so it just adds to the emotion! today i feel good.  i rested well last night, so that helps.  i always FEEL a full moon in some fashion.  this one is in pisces, which is ruled by neptune, the god of the sea and the dream world.  ironic that we’ve had so many hurricanes, eh?! have your dreams been intense lately? write them down! are you having issues deciphering from waking reality and dream world?!

soak it up!

as above, so below.

    Simply WOW! Your photos are stunners. What a beautiful addition to my weekend. And I love that you call yourself a “chefographer”! Brilliant. I think I’ve found a kindred spirit.
