Photo Friday - September 24, 2010 - Shine on Harvest Moon

These are photos taken a few hours before the true Harvest Moon, but I say close enough! They were taken with my Nikon D70 with a Nikon ED AF Nikkor 70-300mm lens on a tripod.

I love the pumpkin-y color of the Moon. So appropriate for the Fall season.

I have a lot of pictures, but I believe that 3 will suffice. The moon is the moon after all. For those who like trivia - the last time a Harvest Moon nearly coincided with the Autumnal Equinox (this year at 11:09 PM US ET 9/22/10) was in 1991. Happy Fall!

This is an absolutely wonderful rendition of "Shine on Harvest Moon" by Laurel & Hardy. It left me smiling. Enjoy!

Not long after I captured the moon a storm blew in. Here is video of the storm that obliterated my chance to take more photos. The video was taken safely by my 9 year old son.


  1. Awesome pics! Love a good full moon, but the Harvest Moon is spectacular!

  2. Jessica - Thank you! I'm a bit surprised that the photos came out! :)

  3. I am so glad you got these pictures. I was wanting to get pictures myself, but the moon was hidden my so many clouds. It looks beautiful coming up right before/at sunset over the trees that are now changing colors. But, couldn't with all the clouds. Great pictures!
