Once in a Blue Moon!

Good Morning, Everyone! Did you see last night's/this morning's Blue Moon? I did, and it was glorious! I did not get to photograph it last night, but I did get a chance to take a few shots this morning. Here it is!

Okay, so technically, the blue moon was not literally blue! It looks a little bluish because of the camera settings I used. I set my white balance to Tungsten, which you would normally use under tungsten lighting. But by using it at night, or early morning, in images that do not include people, this setting can make your skies (or your moon) look a little bluer. This is a little trick taught to me by a certain Photo Ninja friend of mine.

A Blue Moon is a second full moon that occurs within a given month. This does not happen very often. This occurs only about once each 2-1/2 years, hence the expression "Once in a Blue Moon"! I do enjoy photographing the moon fairly often, but especially when it's "Blue"  ;)

Have a wonderful day, Everyone!
