Strawberry SuperMoon



Hi! I want to show you the huge full moon ....



This was on Sunday....



Sunset...



Very high tide, and flooding....



The full moon always rises as the sun sets, and this creates a very high tide.
Not just this week but always. For example during  H. Sandy the height of the storm hit us at sunset, as the October Harvest full moon rose on one of the highest tides of the year [plus winds form the south], creating the enormous, lethal storm surge.



This June moon is traditionally the Strawberry Moon...because of the harvest, not because of its color. But look, it is so pink and golden.

 
I loved the pink reflection on the surf.



My camera does not take good nighttime photos. And it was very windy,. I wish the photos were better.




                                  

....but I wanted to share it with you all anyway.



It was a wonderful evening, a glorious show in the heavens...


love

lizzy

gone to the beach....

  1. I think the pictures came out pretty good considering how small most new cameras are - and it's VERY hard to get a night shot of the moon! You need a tripod or something to hold the camera still...and that's if you have a 'night shot' setting at all! So you did good! Very pretty pink moon! I think the high tides would scare me a little, though...
