Hunters Moon for 2017

Posted by
Denny Jump (Bellevue, WA, United States) on 1 November 2017 in Landscape & Rural.

This is the Hunters Moon for November 2017, the official full moon date will be November 3, 2017, but I had to make this image on 31 October 2017, because we have heavy rains coming in to the Pacific Northwest starting tomorrow, November 1. Sometimes nature has a way of forcing us to make a decision.....Actually, it seems that Nature ALWAYS has a way of forcing a decision ;-) I hope you like this one ;-)

NIKON D800 1/20 second F/5.6 ISO 100 250 mm (35mm equiv.)

** Staples Singers - "Respect Yourself"

- " 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
