The Moon has always had a strange fascination for us. Mysterious powers have been attributed to this ever-present companion of ours (there are many folk tales about it), and science has verified that we definitely need that stellar friend.
So this past week we had a convergence of several phenomena that resulted in showing us a “super blue blood” moon. A few of our members actually got up in the wee morning hours and subsequently submitted their images: Douglas Stockdale and Roger Bennett, and this exhibition honors their dedication. Doug describes the difficulties of this kind of photography in his own blog. Robert Staeck submitted a moon image as well, adding, “Well, it could have happened.” Another member, the one who is writing this post and is known for his surreal images, wanted to share a vision of the moon that he had later that morning when he finally got up. Thus image No. 4 came about, an impression showing a man in the moon with quite a different expression!
There will be more group exhibitions throughout the year! Enjoy!
