Sun And Moon
Blueberries and red strawberries, too.
been a week of red and blue, and I am not talking about politics. I am
referring to the real world. The smoke from the wildfires has made for
some reddish skies over Redding, and we have the August blue moon
just before I played and sang at the Shasta Blues Society Blues Jam, I
went out on the Sundial Bridge to see if there was a good shot of red
sunlight on the waters of the Sacramento river.
It was amazing. I was not disappointed. There were guys wearing waders, and guys fishing from drift boats on the sun splashed river.
thinking that it would make a good composition if the the guys in the
boat would move over into the red water. Fortune smiled on me,
again. I am very thankful.
John finished the red violin this week, and it is exquisite.
I stepped outside 3 different times to get the perfect blue moon image. The first one
has an orange cast because of the lingering smoke from the wildfires.
I went back out an hour later, after it had time to rise above the thick layer.
It still looked a little tan, so I went out again, before midnight, to get another shot while it was still officially a blue moon.
And there you have a nice clear image of the blue moon.
Oh, you were expecting a blue colored moon? I could fake that by
tinting the picture blue, but the Blue Moon is rarely ever blue colored.
“A Blue Moon can be the second full moon in a month. Or it can be the third of four full moons in a season”. (Good Article)
