Supermoon and its Moonshadow

Last night I photographed the “super moon of 2012.”Our beautiful moon was at its closest for the year. It is on an elliptical path, and this coincided with the full moon phase this month, making it extra special, extra bright and beautiful. The moon was 14% bigger and 30% brighter than other full moons of the year.

I wasn’t thinking of the “weekly photo challenge: Unfocused”, I wanted a good photo. I wonder if this qualifies?

Everything went perfectly, no clouds in the sky… when I looked at what I captured, I found this:

The super moon and it’s shadow?

The wonderful old song by Cat Steven came to mind… “Moon shadow”. A song of hope in desperate times. A song about looking for the good in a bad situation. A song that reminds me that no matter how things look, how tough the road I am on seems, God is there and He is faithful. Shadows may be following me, But the Light is always with me. Remember that there is always something good, always a bright side.

Oh, I’m bein’ followed by a moonshadow,
moonshadow, moonshadow
Leapin and hoppin’ on a moonshadow,
moonshadow, moonshadow

And if I ever lose my hands, lose my plough, lose my land,

Oh if I ever lose my hands, Oh if…. I won’t have to work no more.
And if I ever lose my eyes, if my colours all run dry,
Yes if I ever lose my eyes, Oh if…. I won’t have to cry no more.

Oh I’m bein’ followed by a moonshadow,

moonshadow, moonshadow
Leapin’ and hoppin’ on a moonshadow,
moonshadow, moonshadow

And if I ever lose my legs, I won’t moan, and I won’t beg,

Yes if I ever lose my legs, Oh if…. I won’t have to walk no more.
And if I ever lose my mouth, all my teeth, north and south,
Yes if I ever lose my mouth, Oh if…. I won’t have to talk…

Oh I’m bein’ followed by a moonshadow,

moonshadow, moonshadow
Leapin’ and hoppin’ on a moonshadow,
moonshadow, moonshadow
 
Did it take long to find me
I ask the faithful light
Did it take long to find me
And are you going to stay the night


I’m being followed by a moon shadow
Moon shadow moon shadow
Moon shadow moon shadow
Moon shadow moon shadow

I did manage to capture the moon in all its glory.
