moonrise over seabright

one of those breath-catches-in-your-throat moments, sitting in the still warm sand and turning my head toward the ocean waves to see this. even my lovely new 105mm couldn't do it justice to...do click on the photo to enlarge. this one is really worth it.
it reminded me of the harvest moons that would come at the beginning of october. my dad made me feel like they were a special dedication to me for my libra birthday and would always call me out to the horse pasture to see them. so i did the same, rousing all sun-exhausted beach revelers to stand up and see. this moon in july, no fires anywhere, was quite beautifully shocking.

I love the orange glow. Is that other light a UFO admiring the moon?

so, kitty, did you have a tripod? SO black all around looks very very black
I like it it feels like summer night

kim--the lights on the horizon come from a boat. probably a boatful of aliens though.

anonymous (who are you?) i took this shot with the warm waves engulfing my shins. no tripod. and at 1/40 second, 105mm. pretty impressive for these shaky hands. vr (vibration reduction), i luv ya.
