Harvest Moon

Early Sunday evening I went to the train station to pick up my friend Nancy. She had arrived from Boston and was spending the night at my house before making a quick exit the next afternoon (it always goes so quickly) back to Beantown.

On our way home from the train I decided to take the back way, driving by Chapmans Landing. As we came over the bridge ... WOW! The Harvest moon had just risen over the bay and was a soft pink color.


These aren't exactly close up shots because I didn't think my camera would be able to get them without a tripod. I should have at least tried though. The moon was rising so fast I knew time was limited.


And then just like that, it started going behind clouds

Looking up river was just as pink, just as foggy, and just as pretty.

*Life has been a very busy lately and it's next to impossible for me to keep up with everyone's blogs, so I want to publicly thank all those who stop by and leave comments. Thank you all very much!
