By now there are enough blue moon pictures out there that everyone has seen one. In fact, I wouldn’t be surprised if some just skipped this post thinking, “Not another picture.” For those who have been out of touch, there was a second full moon in July.
I read there will not be another until 2018—the last was 2012, which I wrote about here. Those who follow me might remember I made a list of songs that had Moon in the title. Oddly enough, in that post I did not list the song, “Blue Moon” that was done by: The Marcels, Frank Sinatra, Elvis Presley, Dean Martin and Billy Holiday—probably more.
Here are some pictures put up by NPR from around the world. I have no idea how pictures are taken with the moon so huge. I suspect a BIG telephoto lens. Kevin Kirkwood, a neighbor with a gift of great picture taking, took this picture over the silos at the farm.
Yes, I was out there with my tripod. I deleted most of them. As with most of my attempts at picture taking, the first one is the best. The bell picture was taken with the garage lighting. I actually think it isn’t too bad, except for the bird poop. Dang Barn Swallows…
Well, here are my pictures—bird poop and all.
