Wolf Moon over Gloucester

While I was driving home from work the sun was setting on a cold and blustery day. By the time I got home, the show was just about over, but when I looked to the north-east, there was the Wolf Moon rising in the remnants of the sunset. Dot of Dot's Daily Photo Blog brought to our attention that this is the Wolf Moon.

I decided to take this shot to show you what what going on. Notice that the moon is a little jagged around the edges. This is due to the turbulence in the air. The wind sock was straight out and notice the two pennants. These are over the USCG station and signify that there is a gale warning of 34 - 47 knots forecasted for the area.

this is one of my favorite's of yours. I love it. It makes me think of that movie with Cher...Where they sing the Dean Martin song "that's Amore" I think it opens with a shot like that with the moon over NYC. It makes me wonder what all the people in those houses are doing.

Thank you for the magnificent photo. I have been poised, but our fog will not relent.

Wonderful moon captures ... tried this morning the same thing on Plum Island but was disappointed in my moon shots. Got some nice winter landscapes and abstracts though! My best, Juergen

These are incredible Steve! Really beautiful. Reminds me of the movie Moonstruck (it's Cosmo' s moon!).

Fantastic shot Steve. Thanks. It snowed here last night so there was no taking pictures of anything. Carol

Wow how amazing!

Amazing shot, Steve~! You know along with it being the wolf moon the moon actually was bigger Friday. The full moon coincided with perigee which meant it was at it's closest to the earth.

The moon was sure beautiful that night! You have captured it the best! I love the colors. I can't get a shot at the moon till it comes around my side of the building, so most shots are at night. But the best time to take pictures of the moon are just before dark, or like you did here. Absolutely beautiful Steve!!
