Sometimes the picture you want isn't always the one you get. Especially if your about half an hour too late, as I was yesterday with the Blue Moon. I had hoped to be at the coast in time to see it rise above the trees on the horizon, which is when it appears largest, but I didn't make it. I still had some nice photo opportunities so I took them.
On the way home I drove down a side street just to check out the view when I saw this ...
It turned out to be a decent shot and a beautiful sight. I often wonder what it's like to live in a place like that on the water. Not necessarily someplace fancy but just a place with a view of life, coming and going, ever changing.
The moon was still a bit white but as it continued to rise it turned a golden yellow like in the photo below.
Last night was my only chance to capture the elusive Blue Moon since we are on track for storms the next few days.
I want wish you all a very happy but above of all safe New Year! My husband and I plan on staying in for the evening while both of the girls have plans with friends. We're just so boring these days.
