Blue Moon

By fentiger    
This full moon was photographed on the 31st August 2012 and as it was the second full moon in the month it is known as a Blue Moon. The next time that there will be a Blue Moon will be the 31st July 2015 following the first full moon in that month on the 2nd July 2015. I suppose this phenomenon gives rise to the saying "Once in a Blue Moon"

As you can see it is not actually blue Smile

This is an excellent photo, I love the colours not only of the moon but the sky as well, the blackness of the silhouetted buildings, one third two thirds principal works well here very well, nicely balanced good proportions love it, regards Leon.GrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrin
