Under The Harvest Moon

"There is something haunting in the light of the moon; it has all the dispassionateness of a disembodied soul, and something of it's inconceivable mystery."

- Joseph Conrad

The full moon closest to the autumnal equinox is called the Harvest Moon, or Hunter's Moon. It's gift to the farmers of the northern hemisphere, is to provide extra light for them to bring in the harvest from the fields. Most years, the Harvest Moon occurs in September, but some years, like 2006, it happens in early October. I love photographing the moon, especially when it is as beautiful as it was tonight. I am going to try to photograph it again just before sunrise, if I do, I will post a follow-up to this entry. :) But for now, here are a few scenes from under the Harvest Moon in Berkeley...

When I first came to your blog earlier today, I was most disappointed because instead of the first picture, I was getting a red "X", and I knew I was missing something special. I came back tonight, hoping the picture would come up for me this time, and it did! As I suspected, it was a stunner! :-)
