Moon so round and red...


Could you guess this is a setting moon? I woke up early to capture a good sunrise in Belgium and instead ended up with the capture of this setting moon. The eastern skies were cloudy and it was long after ten in the morning I got a glimpse of sun peeping from clouds.

The color of the moon surprised me. I have seen yellow moons and read many poems inspired by yellow moons… but a red moon!

The shot is taken from my hotel room which is facing the Antwerp port.

You and I have both caught a setting moon the same way -- I posted mine last week! But your colors are much more dramatic than mine! Awesome capture for the day, Indrani!! Have a beautiful weekend!

What a shot! Capturing sunrise is always rejuvenating, but am sure that it must have felt great to capture this rare phenomenon.

Lovely moon shot, Indrani. I have seen such moons here in Australia, also. And then of course there is the well-known NEapolitan song "Luna Rossa" (Red Moon)! :-)

I've never seen the moon so red (unless the clouds around it were reddish! Great capture, Indrani!

Native Americans gave all the full moons names. The name for April's full moon is the Pink Moon - a form of red. :)
Lovely shot!
