Harvest Moon & Sun Perfection


The Harvest Moon was slowly rising
in the eastern sky 
as we climbed
out of the car and worked our way to the beach.


I always arrive on the beach first 
and then sometimes
return to hurry them up.


Slow methodical meandering mode...
not me,
...them!


Just over the crest of the grassy dune,
the sun was warming the back of my head
as I work my way over.


The waves are perfect...
the moon is perfect...
the air is refreshingly perfect
and 
the sun is perfect.


See...!


and 
See...!

    Lovely late afternoon shots! Is the water warm enough anymore for a swim, Sophie?

    Nice that you got the Harvest moon shots, it was really cloudy here when the moon was full.

  23. I saw the moon in the sky yesterday morning when I was taking Izzy to school. It was really weird. I didn't know it was a harvest moon ... .thanks for that! Does it only happen this time of year?

    1. The harvest moon appears during the harvest season which is normally in October in the northern hemisphere. One year the moon was so large hanging on the horizon, it felt like I was watching another surreal world. Usually the moon is a glowing yellow orange too...ours wasn't this year. Morning moons during harvest season are not anything I know about...must inquire with The Farmer's Almanac.check out this moon Annie I think you'll see what I'm talking about!
