Moon Monday – Full Moons in 2017

Happy Moon Monday!Happy Moon Monday! What exactly is that, you ask? Well, like I said two weeks ago, I’m sharing some moon pictures, and today is Monday! Today, I’m sharing my Full Moons in 2017.

I started taking pictures every month of the full moon back in March 2015, and seemed to recall I had a pretty good streak of getting shots of the full moon for a number of months in a row. And while in my first Moon Monday post, I said…

….and the streak ended… well, I don’t quite remember. I figure we can find out together. So for the next handful of weeks, I’ll share full moon photos, one for each month, until I find a month without one.

…I discovered pretty quickly that I only made it until September 2016 before I missed a month (thanks to a bum knee). However, I started again for November 2016 so I decided to just keep going for it.

Now since I already know my streak got broken, and since I had a hard time choosing between shots some months, for this post I have 18 of my favorite moon captures from 2017.

Also, all of these shots were taken with my Nikon (which I talk about in this post) whilst making use of my handy dandy tripod.

Full Moons in 2017!

3. March, behind the branches

 
 
3. March – this is one of a few composite photos I’ve created, and I’m including it because it was done in March 2017 using two of my March 2016 photos of a crow and the full moon.

 
 
4. April full moon framed by the tree branches

 
 
5. May – another miss. This one was taken the night after full, because of a storm on the night of.

11. November – I had another bat encounter (like in August 2016), but this time there were 4 bats flying past the moon! At first glance, it only looks like 3, but if you look closely, you can see the fourth at the very bottom of the moon, just off the edge.

 
 
11. November’s moon playing peek-a-boo with the clouds

 
 
12. December, and the moon wanted another go round of peek-a-boo. Who am I to say no? 😊
