Supermoon APR 2021 Over Okinawa
It wasn't exactly pink but, we're glad it made an appearance.
To catch the moon rising over the ocean, we spent a few hours on the east coast of the island.
Heavy clouds interfered with that plan but gave the rising moon some decorative colors.
It was 7:22 PM when this scene was captured.
More dense weather rolled in and the decision was made to leave the wind and beach behind.
On the roof of my house, this scene was composed at 8:54 PM.
Too tired to process the day's photos, this old man went to bed.
The plan was to wake up early and hike to somewhere the moon could be seen setting.
By the time I reached the destination where the moon could be captured setting I groaned.
A thick wall of clouds, off to the west, made it impossible to see the setting moon.
All of a sudden I looked towards the Kin powerplant and there it was.
No longer a Full Moon but, a smokestack covered the part that was missing!
End of story.
