Almost Full

moon over Talpa (Taos, NM)

Looking east (duh) at sunset

It didn’t look that small when I took the picture. (Photography is a mysterious business.) Anyway, the full moon is tomorrow. Maybe it’ll look bigger then!

It was over 60 degrees today, by the way. Dudes with sleeveless T-shirts showing off tattoos, me driving around with my window down. I didn’t build a fire all day except for first thing in the morning. Is winter over now or what? It’s really, really dry and everything is nuts. Pleasant, but insane. At this rate, I have enough firewood to last until December.

    Serene. Lovely. There is a scientific explanation for why the moon looks bigger nearer the horizon. Optics, I think.

    I always look forward to a nice photo – almost daily, even if I do not always comment. Thank you.

    I also tried to get this moon. So beautiful! You have a better camera, but I agree, somehow it looks smaller in a photo.

    Capricious things, cameras.

    Just looked at the moon tonight. Hey, it is bigger. Well, it’s bigger in Texas anyway. Ha! By the way, can you see the stars real clear there at night like they can in south Texas? Or, do you have a lot of cloud cover at night?
