Blue Moon

According to folklore: the second full moon in one calendar month is a blue moon, and this one is my version.

Shot low over the roof tops in the Old City (Gamlebyen), Fredrikstad, 31st August at 21:25, Norwegian Summer Time.


According to USNO the actual full moon was at 15:58 (Universal time + 2 hours), or 6 hours and 33 minutes earlier.


Canon 7D shot, with the Canon 100-400mm L IS lens set at 400mm. Manual exposure (f/13 and 1/125 sec), auto focus, ISO 100.


Blue Moon

You saw me standing alone

Without a dream in my heart

Without a love of my own


Blue Moon

You know just what I was there for

You heard me saying a prayer for

Someone I really could care for


And then there suddenly appeared before me

The only one my arms will hold

I heard somebody whisper please adore me

And when I looked to the Moon it turned to gold
