Blue Moon


Blue Moon

Looking out of the window on the night of August 31st, there he was: Mr. Full Moon, just beautiful! I got my camera and - my first try at photographing the moon - took a few shots. To my surprise, some turned out well. Reading the newspaper next morning, I realized what special moon I had captured: the Blue Moon! I've often used the expression 'once in a blue moon' and love that old song 'Blue Moon' but now, I asked myself, what exactly is a 'Blue Moon' ? A 'Blue Moon' is referred to when 2 full moons appear in the course of one same month. In August, the first one appeared on the 2nd and the so called 'Blue Moon' on the 31st. I thought I'd scrap this rare occasion! If you too would love to see that 'Blue Moon', watch out for July 31st 2015!

(Needless to say that on the photos I took, the moon was not blue!! But, with the help of PS, I gave him that touch of 'Blue')
