Late nights can be just aswell.

A few days until full moon

Just like the Finnish Sininen Hetki, the civil twilight, it lasts only for a brief moment. And if you’re at the right place at the right time, you may see some out of this world things…

Sorry, couldn’t help myself πŸ˜€

Yesterday morning I had some business downtown and along the way I noticed a massive full moon hanging way above the tree line. It was really pretty. The moon set on the side where the rising sun cast its beams, so it was a double prize πŸ™‚
I was kind of in a hurry, and I didn’t have the time to stop at that time (which annoyed me already), and I knew that moon wasn’t going to stick until the time suited me better to make a picture. And ofcourse… When I returned about 20 minutes later, the size had shrunk significantly.

But really… The big moon looked so much better… Thank ….. (God, Jahweh, Buddah, Allah, etc. which ever you feel is appropriate) I have Photoshop, so I can at least make it look like the way I really saw it πŸ˜‰
