Full Harvest Moon


I took these photos a couple of hours ago. What a gorgeous October night it is ~ a beautiful full moon, clear skies and a comfortable cool temperature. I could get lost in this moon ~ it is so bright and magical. This moon is the Full Harvest Moon and it is the largest of the year because it is the closest.

It has been a beautiful moon this month and once again tonight she is just as gorgeous...

Beautiful! I woke the other morning to a moon slowing setting behind the pines----having no tripod handy, I leaned against the house and shot anyway.
What I ended with were photos blurred, but a little overlay in Photo Scape and I had two atmospheric pics that looked like they could have been used as a BG in a horror movie---they were FUN!
Yours are just plain perfect and lovely!
What a moon this has been.... :)

XXOO~~♥

It looks so perfectly round! I love the full moon. It gives me an impression of cool breezy night.

Ah, you are welcome, dear Audrey. I read you sidebar and I did not know when it happened. I am sorry for your loss. May your brother rest in peace and I am so happy that there is a rose bush in his memory! Take care. Tsup!

In Medieval England, the October moon is the blood moon. For Native Americans in Oklahoma and Texas, it's the blackberry moon. In Colonial America and the Old Farmer's Almanac, it's the harvest moon, sometimes the hunter's moon. In China, it's the kind moon, named Qiuyue. In my house, it's called beautiful. (Beautiful photographs.)
