August moon (photos)

I am still figuring out how to use my camera, but I’m happy with these two pictures I took last night.  Hasn’t the full moon been beautiful the past few evenings? 

The photo above was the first I took, when the moon still had that reddish-yellow color.  Then I fooled around with the camera settings and took the second photo, below, a couple minutes later.  By then the moon had risen higher and had lost its color.

In watching the Olympics on television the other night, I saw the beautiful full moon in the London sky atop the Tower Bridge.  It still amazes me that the moon over London is the same moon I see here in Milwaukee. 

The world is so big, yet so small and interconnected at the same time.
