Speechless Sundays -- Moon Glow

Industry Observer with RETIRED / State License is Inactive Inactive License Oregon


I took this photo a few weeks ago.  There was a beautiful halo encircling the Moon that night.  I wanted to capture it.  It was dramatically lighting up the low-hanging clouds.  

The other day I uploaded the photo and was amazed to see this photo.  

Supposedly, this occured because of "camera shake."  I'm not into photography, or ET's, but the tree silouettes didn't shake, and the clouds seem to be firmly affixed.

In this ho hum, drab, mean-spirited, cruel, irreverent world in which we live . . . I kinda lke to think there's a little magic going on . . . a flight of fancy, if you will.

I think it's a reminder to all of us - there is plenty of beauty (and magic) left in our world. We just need to focus on it more. You've done a nice job of bringing it home. Hope you're having a great holiday season, Carla.

Good morning Carla, I believe there's more good people in the world than evil and definitely enough magic for all of us. Thank you for sharing such great photo and message!

I remember when you first took the shot.  It's just as neat now as it was then.

Hi Carla Muss-Jacobs, Principal Broker/Owner ,  Hmm, They talk about the light at the end of the tunnel and the bright light at the end of life.  Maybe you captured someones light. I know a man that was in a Ghost group.  They are always capturing images on film that you can't see in real life.  Actually, it could be a reflection from the moon on the entrails of a jet plane that passed by earlier.
