moonrise over the ocean {blue moon}

I’m a fool for full moons. And last night’s was no exception. It was not only full, but it was also a blue moon. The last one of its kind was in 2010 and the next one will be in 2016. Its name, though, isn’t indicative of its color; read more about why it’s called a blue moon here. I went with a friend to the jetties where we tried to capture this rare moon and I ended up with more than 150 photos. Whoops. Here are some of my faves in a gallery that progresses through the evening: from moonrise to its brightest point.

Blue moon
Now I’m no longer alone
Without a dream in my heart
Without a love of my own
