Harvest Moon over Gloucester and Tonight's Sundogs

The Harvest Moon is the full moon closest to the autumnal equinox. This is the moon rising over Gloucester last Sunday Night.

Post Script: I went out for a walk after work today and spotted these sundogs. Oh no! As beautiful as these are, they are harbingers of bad weather.

Beautiful captures. Is it still warm enough for a bit of canoodeling by the light os the silvery moon???

Kelly said...

...love that last photo...all the sharp lines and triangles lit by the round moon--pure geometry!

Chris Petrak said...

Wow!!

What a wonderful light! And the closeup of the moon - that is an awesome shot! Agree with Kelly: that is some geometry for you!

Linda Jacobs said...

Exquisite!

Now those are breathtaking captures! How fantastic and the boats just add to the whole shot! I love it! Hard to choose a favorite, but do love the last one!

Thanks for the beauty! Have a great weekend!

Your third (or so) shot proves there is a man living in the moon. ;-)

Sublime.

Great capture of the sundogs. They are cool! Wonderful photos and I especially love the pretty color on the moon.

Really - I didn't know Sun Dogs mean bad weather? Surely not - they're too interesting and lovely... I really like that moon above Razzo and Mary & Josephine! Great captures, as always, Steve.
PS A wet snow in Boulder, too.

Very creative ski watch pictures. The one with the moon nearest is gorgeous!!! Well done.

Eve said...

Again WOW!!!

Arija said...

WOW, I'm glad I came back so I got to see your great sundogs. The most i have ever seen is three, I know it is possibly to see four but have never had the pleasure.

It sure was a beauty, wasn't it? Even prettier reflecting off the water.

I've never heard of sundogs. Bad weather or not they're really neat!
