Werewolf Moon

Even a man who is pure in heart
and says his prayers by night,
may become a wolf when the wolfbane blooms
and the autumn moon is bright.
The Wolf Man (1941) ...


The Dark of the Moon

A story about this shot... the shot of the sunset with the paraglider on my last SkyWatch Friday was taken last month when I spent a few days at the coast. Just as the sun disappeared into the horizon in the West, a stranger came up to me and told me to look behind me. This gorgeous moon was coming up over a mountain to the East. It was amazing. People who had gathered to watch the sunset stood in awe as the moon climbed into the sky.

I darkened the sky a little for a more striking effect.
