Werewolf Moon



Even a man who is pure in heart
and says his prayers by night,
may become a wolf when the wolfbane blooms
and the autumn moon is bright.
The Wolf Man (1941) ...

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

The Dark of the Moon

A story about this shot... the shot of the sunset with the paraglider on my last SkyWatch Friday was taken last month when I spent a few days at the coast. Just as the sun disappeared into the horizon in the West, a stranger came up to me and told me to look behind me. This gorgeous moon was coming up over a mountain to the East. It was amazing. People who had gathered to watch the sunset stood in awe as the moon climbed into the sky.

I darkened the sky a little for a more striking effect.

  2. AWESOME SHOT! I've been trying to take a good moon shot but I think I need to do it just at moonrise and not much later. Great.

    Happy Halloween. As I keep on commenting today, we don't celebrate Halloween here in South Africa. I think it is something I would really enjoy, but its just hasn't taken hold over here. Pity.

  13. Great shot! Thriller was the last great record Michael Jackson made. Now he's just a freak. So sad. He had such great talent!
