I enjoyed going up to St. Pete with the West Coast Camera Club on Saturday evening with the goal of photographing the full moon rising over the Pier. Since the pier may or may not be demolished in the up coming months due to decay of the sub structure, with all the times I have gone up to the pier for different photographic events, I had not as yet taken a photo of the pier structure itself. I did not think I was taking a photo for the blog, but when I started to process it, I found it fit the theme of Light very nicely.
The moon in January was called a wolf moon. It got that name from the Native Americans because they used to hear the wolves howl outside the villages. The the Algonquin name for that moon is squochee kesos or “sun has not strength to thaw”. Well the Algonquin were not in Florida, with our 75 degrees – no freeze here.
Whatever you call it – it was a full moon and it cast a great glow, which this pair were taking full
advantage of the “Light by the Silvery Moon”.
