Smokey Moon

Hazy, smoky moon.

Monday night was a full moon, and with a cloudless day, I had high hopes of getting some moon shots.

The moon was clearer as it rose higher in the sky.

I didn’t consider the layer of smoke surrounding us from two nearby wildfires.  While the moon wasn’t quite as clear as it would have been without the smoke, it gave it a hazy look and the smoke enhanced the color.

The smoke also gave us a gorgeous sunset which I will post soon.

  1. Beautiful shots and while the smoke looks thick, it enhanced the moon rise….hope they get the fires out soon. We have had some of the smoke drift this way but so far it has not hung in the air too long. Can’t wait to see the sunset photos too:)

    1. Thank you. The smoke seems to have died down quite a bit and I understand most of the fires are contained although the one at Warms Springs has increased in size. Hopefully we’ll get a little moisture soon . . . haven’t had any in a while and things are pretty dry around here.

I'd love to hear from you
