Big moon, bright moon

The best part of watching the fireworks last night from my balcony was seeing an orange moon rise above the mountains. A moon the size of my fist.  A smokey purple cloud crossed through its center.

The fireworks were south and the moon was east.  My head swiveled back and forth to keep track of both, spellbound.


  1. I do hope you're entering that photograph in your county fair. Exquisite, and not in the trite sense.

    Thank you for sharing this!

  2. It was the most amazing moon I've ever seen, I think. When it rose, I yelled louder than I had for any of the fireworks. Some people gave me dirty looks. Most people just gasped right along with me. Mother nature totally upstaged us all.
