Once in a Very Blue Moon and Awards

This shot reminds me of Nanci Griffith's song. One of my better 'moon shots'. Our full moon was last night, however we had big thunderstorms and lots of no moonview. This was the night before.

Many thanks to both Noelle and Colleen for giving me this award.
I do not want to be ingracious about receiving such a nice award. I write this blog for various reasons and am pleased that others enjoy reading it. I accept the award and offer it to all who read my blog as I can't choose to whom I should forward this. Many thanks ladies. It is most appreciated.
