Full Moon Setting Over Lake Geneva for Photo Friday
June 16th, 2011
Amie from Ciao Bambino
Every once in awhile we do a Photo Friday post that has nothing to do with traveling with kids. This week is one of them. For a good reason …
I’m a moon junkie and will drive long distances to watch the full moon rise. This week I didn’t have to go far to get a dose of moon magic.
We are lucky enough to live on the shores of Lake Geneva (Lac Leman) and have a view of France (Evian) from our bedroom window. The full moon setting across from us was so bright that it woke me up.
This turned out to be a huge gift as I was able to record the moon’s stunning journey out of sight. These photos are un-doctored — the reflection on the lake was as vibrant as it looks in this image.
The real treat arrived when the moon was very low and turned bright orange. I was like a little kid rubbing my eyes in utter disbelief.
The final phases happen unbelievably fast.
For more Photo Friday joy head over to Delicious Baby.
