full sturgeon moon





It's been a few days but I wanted to share my photos of the full sturgeon moon on Sunday evening, August 10, 2014 around 8:00 pm over the St. John River Valley.


~~~~~~~~~~~~


Waning full moon on Monday evening August 11, 2014 over looking the St. John River valley taken near the same spot as in the above photos and about a half hour later in the evening.


Not good pictures but I like the lighting in the last two and it was nice to document this super moon for August.  I also like the moonlight on the few clouds in the bottom photos too.  The moon was a soft orange colour which doesn't show in my photos.  It was a beautiful sight!

We had a full day of rain yesterday but the sun broke through today.  We really needed a good soaking rain as the gardens were dry.  At least I don't have to lug the watering cans around!  ;)

Thank you for all your visits and kind remarks on our son's wedding pictures.  Enjoy the weekend!

Blessings,

Pam

  1. Hi Pamela, I really love these pictures of your full moon! And I can see the St. John River in the distance. The lights at night are captivating also. I hope all is well with you and your family. Our new little grandson was born last week. Cayden James (James after my husband, isn't that sweet?). We are delighted.

  2. Those are beautiful photos! Love the colors you captured and the wispy clouds above and below. Most of my photos showed that aura around the moon. Did you see that?

  7. Beautiful, Pam. The moon is a wonderful subject. Thanks for mentioning your son't wedding because I'm so sorry I missed it so I scrolled back and WOW, that is what a wedding should be. I love the country theme and so fitting for their personalities. Very handsome bride and groom and Mom and Pop are not so bad either..Happy Friday..Judy

  10. Oh a full moon, and rain? You have it all there....love your shots. So did the rain cool it down a bit? We keep getting told that it's going to rain, and it spits a bit, nothing enough or too wet. But a good cooling down, damping rain would be welcome.

  11. So beautiful! My attempts at moon pic's on Sunday night were not quite so successful. I need to do a little more 'playing with my camera'!

  12. Great contrasting photos of the moon - I like the difference in the light - and the clouds too. We had your good soaking rain here - it poured and we had a record for yesterday - just after I had hauled the last six kitchen cupboard doors out to the deck to begin cleaning them - back in they came - maybe tomorrow I'll get to that project.

  13. I was out at the Esquimalt Lagoon on the weekend, trying to photograph the super moon over the water. It was spectacular in life - not so good in my photos! Yours are great!
