Timeless (34) From time to time. The moon. In November

Gulls & sunset.
Because of some scattered clouds...The result: a blurred face of the moon in a cloudy photographic view on the night sky... 🌝☔☁

Well... At first, I had a chance to observe the moon... the Supermoon... In the media it was mentioned about it that on " Nov. 14's supermoon will be one of three to close out 2016, it will stand out from the rest as the largest one since 1948. It will appear 14 percent larger and 30 percent brighter than a full moon that falls on apogee, the point in the moon's orbit when it is farthest away from the Earth." *(excerpts from internet.)
At noon and precisely, late in the afternoon, the sky was almost clearly, with some scattered clouds... However, after 8 pm... the sky had become so cloudy...

The result: a blurred face of the moon in a cloudy view on the night sky...
So... maybe I'll have another chance in 18 years from now on... :) 🌕🌕🌝
Gulls & sunset. Gulls on the sky in a chilly overcast day.
Gulls & sunset in chilly autumn
Gulls & autumn in the evening
Gulls & sunset.
Gulls & sunset.
Gulls & sunset.

Extrase/Excerpts About
How to Photograph a Supermoon
From around the web/media*
*Source: National Geographic & internet (various sources).
"Supermoons aren’t that rare—the moon has been moving in much the same way for millennia—but this one will be the closest in 68 years, and it’ll be another 18 years before it’s this big again. As a result, the phenomena provides a great opportunity for astrophotography."
"Technically, the moon is the same size anywhere you see it in the sky. But seeing it near the horizon with structures like buildings, trees, or mountains for scale plays a trick on the mind that makes the moon seem slightly bigger (even though it’s not). Shooting with this in mind, and including these points of reference, will make for a richer photograph."

"Write it on your heart
that every day is the best day in the year.
He is rich who owns the day, and no one owns the day
who allows it to be invaded with fret and anxiety.
Finish every day and be done with it.
You have done what you could.
Some blunders and absurdities, no doubt crept in.
Forget them as soon as you can, tomorrow is a new day;
begin it well and serenely, with too high a spirit
to be cumbered with your old nonsense.
This new day is too dear,
with its hopes and invitations,
to waste a moment on the yesterdays.*"

"I am no shadow no god but a companion
A container without a name and soulful riddle
When I get lost on land
I am found in the sky
I am the boat and I am the riverbank
I am the resident and I am the residence
I am like the deer musk
I am the life of fragrance
I follow my heart and I am always happy
I am my own hope

Main saawan phagun bhaando,
Rang deti hoon main jaan ko,

I am rain spring summer
I give color to life
From the source of light to all illumination, it's all me
From the source of sound to all that can be heard it's all me
I am the embroidery of the Milky Way
I am the blame for always being happy
I am my own uniqueness
I am priceless".

  1. Imi plac fotografiile mult, mult, mult! Nu s-o vedea Luna in toata splendoarea, dar asa cum ai surprins-o este ea, cea adevarata: misterioasa, sau poate doar timida, uneori, si se ascunde printre nori. :)
    Imi place si cum ai potivit-o in varf de pom, ca o corola, ca o ultima floare a verii. :)
    Blocul pare un turn de cetate.
    Iti doresc, cu drag, o saptamana minunata!

    1. Am asteptat sa vad luna, "super-luna" promisa in toata splendoarea, dar vremea "simpatica" ne-a jucat feste...*-* Nici o problema; mai avem o sansa probabila in cca. 18 ani, se spune!! Tot e bine, cumva, ca am reusit sa observ pescarusii in zbor, ce s-au pripasit pe aici, desi, conditiile geo-climatice nu le sunt tocmai favorabile. E adevarat ca avem lacuri destule prin jur, dar totusi, ma gandesc ca le-ar sta mai bine pe langa tarmul marii.
      Oh, intr-adevar, in noapte, blocul pare "turn"...
      Saptamana frumoasa in continuare, asemenea! Salutari cordiale cu drag!

  2. Hello,Alex,
    Beautiful sky and birds. I like your moon peeking in the dark.

    1. So lovely said "peeking in the dark". The weather was really poor for observing this interesting event. Thank you so much, Tomoko!

  3. Tare frumoase imagini! Cu adevarat m-am delectat!
    Ca si mesajele inspirationale. Adevaruri evidente, dar uneori ce este prea evident, scapa...
    O saptamana minunata, draga Alexa! :)

    1. Vremea si vremurile; intr-adevar, adevarurile evidente, pot scapa... Ne delectam, cum frumos ai mentionat, cu evenimentele anuntate, (pe cat ne este posibil), in pas cu timpul si timpurile pe care le traim. :) Saptamana minunata, Suzana! Cu multumiri pentru gandurile exprimate si salutari cordiale cu drag!

  4. Lovely photos, Alexa! I'm sorry you didn't see the moon well. We didn't see it all, have had thick clouds for some days...
    Your sky photos are very beautiful. I too love the golden light, created by the setting sun (?) and it's always interesting to observe clouds and the birds flying in the sky. Big hugs! ♥

    1. Many thanks, Sara! It was not possible, this time, to clearly see the moon, for sure; But, I think that the event was lovely worldwide and through media, it was nice to have a short glimpse. And you're right about observing "clouds and the birds flying", especially at sunset. Hugs and greetings to you, a very good weekend, too!

  5. According to traditional Japanese aesthetics, we see beauties in imperfection rather than in perfection. Thinly veiled full moon by the clouds is preferred to the clearly visible full moon. I like your moon peeking out of the clouds. I couldn’t see the super moon due to overcast sky, but the moon two days later was also big and bright. The bare trees in the sky photos show how the autumn has deepened. Wish you a nice weekend.


    1. So lovely mentioned:"beauty in imperfection rather than in perfection". The moon was not clearly visible, this time, but the way, it was, as a "peeking out of the clouds" was ok. Many thanks for the wonderful thoughts expressed about! I'm so thankful and I wish you a nice week ahead, too!

  6. Hello, I love seeing the peaceful sight of the birds flying free in the sky. Lovely skies and moon captures. Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Happy Saturday, enjoy your weekend!

    1. Thank you very much, Eileen; the sky was lovely, indeed, at noon; after that became so grey. Thank you again for appreciation and a very good week ahead, to you!

  7. Those birds in the sky look so good in your black and white photo. Our skies were VERY cloudy for the Supermoon - I finally managed a photo the next day near moonset.

    1. Wonderful to observe the moon, even in the next day! sadly, the weather was still cloudy.

  8. Post filled with lots of lovely info and magnificent photography ~ just beautiful ~ thanks

    Wishing you a gentle weekend ~ ^_^

  9. Hi!I like your first photo very much. I could not see the super moon.either. But I could see the moon one day before. It was very big. wishing you have a nice Sunday.

    1. So nice to observe the moon, even one day before; indeed, it was close enough, too! Many thanks and a good week ahead!

  10. Love your pics!

    I was hoping to see the Super Moon in D.C., but the weather turned cloudy and it even drizzled.

    To 18 years from now!!

    1. *-* Cloudy, indeed; it was not possible to see the moon clearly, this time!!

  11. Hello Alexa... Wow these are wonderful photos..I love the light you caught and the music...

    1. Thank you kindly so much, Michelle! The light, indeed, was warm in the afternoon; but in the night, the sky became cloudy...anyway, important, it is that I tried to capture the event! ;) Thank you, again!

  12. Thanks for sharing at

  13. Good morning Alexa. You captured some lovely moody skies even if it wasn't the best nite for moon watching. We missed it completely (and sixteen years from now probably isn't an option at my age )))l. I always appreciate your inspirational poetry and quotes . The Emerson one is a favorite.

    1. Thank you very much, Sallie! I'm so touched to read your lovely, sensitive thoughts about the mix of poetry, photos and quotes, as well! So thankful, once again!

  14. Boa tarde, excelente selecção de fotos e informação.
