And The Moon Shall Turn To Blood

It’s odd … I started this site primarily to write about politics, and instead it’s become a naturalist photojournalism site. I’ve posted shots of spiders up close, the tops of mountains, hummingbirds in flight, national parks from above, national parks from below, moose, Caribbean vistas, the Rocky Mountain gloaming, and hurricane Isabel from 35,000 feet.

Tonight, I bring you the moon in eclipse, which we on the East coast enjoyed at 8:15 PM (as usual, click the picture to see a larger version).

It reminds me of this …

Eclipse / Pink Floyd, Dark Side Of The Moon

All that you touch
All that you see
All that you taste
All that you feel
All that you love
All that you hate
All you distrust
All that you save
All that you give
All that you deal
All that you buy
beg, borrow or steal
All you create
All you destroy
All that you do
All that you say
All that you eat
everyone you meet
All that you slight
everyone you fight
All that is now
All that is gone
All that's to come
and everything under the sun is in tune
but the sun is eclipsed by the moon.

I was singing that song in my head all night as I sat outside staring at the moon. I stayed out for about two hours before I got too cold.

Your pictures came out much better than mine.

See you on the dark side of the moon.

Must be the camera ... certainly isn't the operator ...

I enjoyed the Caribbean vista pictures; sure am looking forward to Jan. 1 when Ron and I fly to Miami and board the Carnival Spirit for our 8-day Southern Caribbean cruise, I got the time off approved today! My boss is an allright guy! Hope all is well with you!
