Strawberry Moon

The first full day of summer ended with a beautiful full moon. I rarely ever get out to get night shots and only grabbed these from the driveway. As it usually goes; as soon as I got set up clouds rolled in and covered the moon, and stayed for longer than I was willing to swat away mosquitoes.

Every month I say I will get out, yet either the weather or  the schedule doesn’t cooperate. Yet I live in hope.

Even with the clouds the reflected light was bright enough to read by and a lovely peachy color.

How amazingly brilliant the full moon must have seemed in the centuries before artificial light.
