Tonight's full moon

Bill Benson and I were coming back from a delicious barbeque dinner at Bandits as the moon started coming up over the horizon.  By the time I could get home, grab my camera, change lenses, and hook up the tripod, I had lost the interesting horizon and it was just moon and sky.

Then a set of clouds wandered under the moon, just above the horizon.  The shapes and lighting were very interesting.

The fringes almost look like NASA's pictures you see of nebula. Very wispy with changing color.

Not thrilling, but it sure beats watching TV.  While I was shooting, my associate photographer Jasper (the dog) was busy trying to see the large deer we could hear stomping around in the scrub oak about 50 yards above us.
