Waiting for the Moon

Posted by

I captured this on Sunday, Jan 1 2018...which was actually the official first day of the full "wolf moon." As a consequence, the moon did not really surface above the mountains until about 15 minutes after this image was made. When the moon finally DID appear, the sky was, really starting to get darker. I, nevertheless, managed to collect a few more images..I will present one or two more shots in the coming days to display the transitions that occur.

(Note: my post for January 5, will display the full Super Moon for January)

I know the general guideline suggests shooting moon shots on the day before official fool moon...but since that day was New Years eve and I was busy devouring Hors d'nerves and soda,,,,so, oh well :-)

Incidentally, the beautiful White Mountain is Mount Baker , elevation 10,781 feet / 3,286 Km

- " 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."

::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"
