Momentous Moon

This week, of course… The Moon.

I’ve never actually set out to photograph the moon before – and will always see it differently, now.

Last week Irene Latham shared some poems inspired by a prompt in the book, POEMCRAZY: Freeing Your Life with Words by Susan G. Wooldridge. Irene’s words, heart and wisdom were inspiring, and worthy of reading, here. The task was to 1) name an object, 2) describe it, likening it to something else, then, 3) ask it to bring you a quality it has. Whilst my poem was inspired by an evening with the super blue blood moon, it kept reverting back to the purity of the full moon, before it was cast into shadow… (And truth be told, my blood moon photos are not very good.)

I’m curious to know if you recognise my moon from your part of the world. 🙂

    • I went googling moon pics, to identify that spot near the top (Tycho Crater) – and was surprised to see that all the moon pics were upside down! 🙂 #ofcourse #whywasisurprised (It’s a bit like our astonishment on seeing the water in toilet bowls spiral back-to-front when flushed in America.) Once I got my bearings, it was, of course, the same moon. 🙂

  1. Your final moon moment equates with mine Kat. I ventured out to take a photograph and the moon had gone all shy and hidden behind a cover of clouds. So, I am grateful for your pics and poems. Marvellous moon moments!

    • By the blood moon stage, I think my eyes decided they’d worked long enough in poor lighting. Everything was a blur! We only had occasional clouds scudding across, so were very fortunate!

  2. I love that “glow with grace”, Kat. My pictures are not close to the quality of yours, but love that we were seeing that so special appearance and I have pics to prove it! I’ve watched the moon many times with students, a month of moon-watching about every other year, and I never tired at our own “glow” as we shared together. Thanks for a beautiful collection of our moon.

    • It’s not often that we can share these momentous events, Linda. So often if you see them, we don’t, and vice-versa. And you’re right – sharing wonder with kids and students is always new and exciting. I’m smiling at your glow.

    • I was pleasantly surprised at the pictorial capture, Diane. Even my blood moon pics, which were disappointing when compared to the clarity of the earlier pics, were heaps better than I’d anticipated! I may need to try for some more moon pics. (And earlier in the evening, so I can get silhouettes, too.)

  3. I’ve always had a love affair with the moon – the blue-blooded supermoon in streaks of red just made me fall in love with it all over again – thank you for sharing these photographs: may we all glow with grace, hope, peace, and love as you so beautifully put it.
