8th March 2012



The full moon rose at 7:17pm tonight, seemed like a civilised time to be up on the Velvet Ridge just north of my house to see it perform. It wasn't late and came up a deep red colour, my attempts to capture that effect were a bit of a failure though.

The first good picture of the full moon came several minutes after it rose and it had lost the red colour, still it's not bad...

The red buttes looked great.

The Tundra loves wandering around the Velvet Ridge day or night, so apparently does Biff, he got out each time we stopped and disappeared to explore some shadowy location.

The Bentonite Playground had a strange green colour where there was no red present.

We were out for about two and a half hours, the temperature hovered right at freezing but the air was completely still so it wasn't cold.
