Hazy Hunter's Moon

Posted by Denny Jump (Bellevue, WA, United States) on 6 October 2017 in Landscape & Rural.

The formal Native American name for October's Full moon is the "Hunter's Moon." Wednesday evening I made this image of the moon rising over the Cascade Mountains of Washington, in a seriously hazy appearance. The combination of haze and multiple clouds provided what almost appeared to be rings around the moon, much like Saturn's rings. A rather strange appearance, indeed.
I hope you enjoy ;-)

- " We do not move forward from a middle opinion, which is undemocratic but mediocratic.
We advance from a creative passion "- (Edgar Morin)

- "To photograph is to hold one's breath, when all faculties converge to capture fleeting reality. It's at
that precise moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy."
- Henri Cartier-Bresson.

::Words from Denny:
- My beliefs, and values, have always been strongly tied-to music, especially Jazz, and Blues.
- The following artists and lyrics seem to "sum-up" where my spirit resides:
EARTH WIND AND FIRE;
"HOLD ON TO YOUR SPIRIT,
ALWAYS FEEL YOUR SOUL....
HONOR THE MAGIC IN YOUR HEART"
; Earth Wind and Fire
