FEB 2020 Full Moon Preview

A Wee Bit Early

Living on an island, weather can be unpredictable, so here's a sneak preview.

The moon in this photo is at about 99.9% full and most folks wouldn't guess it ain't full, yet.

Luckily, I woke up before 4 AM and looked out my back door to check on the moon.

It was nice and bright but, fast-moving clouds kept ruining the scene.

This photo was taken at 4:29 AM from the roof of my house.

After a few swigs of ice coffee, I walked down to the beach, where I could see the moonset.

 Carrying the weight of a tripod,  and the Pentax (420 MM of a lens) is good exercise.

The moon was covered by clouds the whole time I was walking. That was 3800 steps.

Every day I try to get at least 10,000 steps of walking done and, some easy weight conditioning.

Unlike Arnold Schwarzenegger, I won't quit training just because I'm 72. That wuss!

If I'm still alive and, the moon shows, I'll probably go out and shoot it again tonight. 

In case you haven't noticed, the rabbit is upside down. See ya later...
