LIFE'S BETTER IN THE MOUNTAINS

Carolina Moon

We have had some absolutely wonderful autumn days this past week. The cool, crisp mornings and sunny days inspire everyone to be outdoors.

As an added bonus, we have a full moon this week. It rises just before the sun goes down and is incredibly beautiful.

There is still sufficient light to show the colorful trees as well as the full moon.



Here is the relection of the moon and the trees in the waters of a nearby lake.
As the sun goes down, the moon is surrounded by a lovely orange glow.
And here is the face of the old man, barely visible.
The most special thing about a full moon is that it shines directly into our bedroom around 10:00 every night. What a treat to have the moonlight flooding the room.

I, also, was sitting and enjoying that ole moon last evening! I love pictures in sequence, that show change or movement! Great shots! Thanks for visiting my blog, I appreciate your comments. You always have such nice photos, its fun to see what images you've captured with your camera.

Yes, the cool, crisp nights make the moon more clear, it seems. Beautiful.

Last night, it was as if there was a gigantic nightlight on outside! No matter which way I turned, it was coming through the blind slats and bathing my face! :c)

I do love the autumn moon. Clear & crisp 10 deg F mornings, trees dropping leaves for a winter's sleep, the snow line creeping down the ridges toward the valley...

WOW--and double wow.
Yeah, tonight is full moon. The October full moon--the Hunter's moon.
I will have to go out tonight and see what the full moon looks like here.
