Day 323: Something Beautiful—Harvest Moon

Something Beautiful is a self-imposed initiative to find a visual feast for each day of the year.

Harvest Moon. Every autumn as I gaze on another harvest moon, Neil Young’s anthem runs in my head. Despite focus on the late season violent weather over the weekend, a big ole harvest moon dipped betwixt and between the fast moving inky blue storm clouds. A reminder of all the spectacular fall moons of my life. Raging winds and the threat of being caught on the road during the tornado watch Sunday night kept me from shooting pictures of the current moon. But many wonderful images like this one by William Jobes captures the awe, scale, and beauty of what I saw again the other night—with a side dish of composition creativity.
