Happy Full Moon Weekend

I love when we have a full moon. Photographing it has long been an obsession of mine. It's so beautiful when it rises.
The light of a full moon lets us go for mini-adventures after sunset. Some friends went for a full moon bike ride with us last evening. Fortunately, although I can't hike (our usual full moon activity), I can still pedal a bike!

This silhouette of Shyla reminds me of a wolf howling at a full moon.
I haven't noticed whether our coyotes howl more during full moons. However, I have always wondered if the bright moonlight affects a mountain lion's ability to sneak up on prey. I don't know whether it does but it's an interesting effect of moonlight to contemplate.

Happy Full Moon!

    Meanwhile, I would have no idea what phase we are at, coz we have barely seen any empty sky for over a week now!!! These are glorious images. YAM xx

    1. I hope that the skies clear soon! It is always a bit of a downer to have clouds for so long.

  2. Those are both such wonderful photos!

  3. You and me both on the moon obsession. I'm glad you had clear skies. I friend asked me take photos of the moon for her, because they were socked in with snow.

  4. What an amazing photo of the moon. The color WOW!
    Shyla your silhouette is lovely.
    Hugs madi your bfff

  5. each night this week we have stared at how BIG the moon was and the brightness was like a big flashlight looking down on us from heaven. lit up the back yard so bright we could see sand on the deck. i would think that kind of brightness would effect those big beautiful cats... love the silhouette

  6. What a great silhouette of you, Shyla!

  7. LOVE that shot of Shyla! We've had so much cloudiness here lately, I can't remember the last time we saw the moon!

  8. I love the moon peaking out from behind the mountain.

  9. Awesome shots!!! We can tell when it is full moon time by the antics of the two youngsters here - hyperactivity with no limit:)

  10. OMD, that silhouette is amazin'!!! Shyla, you do looks like a coyote howlin' at the moon! BOL! (though, I've seen our coyotes here, and you are SOOOOO much cuter!)

  11. That moon was so bright, it even woke me up! The city full moon isn't nearly as picturesque you yours.

  12. Such a beautiful silhouette!

  13. The night was clear
    And the moon was yellow
    And the leaves came tumbling down
