Biggy

This was the biggy of the year, the annual full moon when the moon is closest to the earth. I took a bunch of pictures of the moon rising over the cliffs east of the Rio Grande here at the park. By moving around, side to side and forward and back, I was able to make this moonrise last and last, a good half hour. With some luck I got a few interesting enough to develop into a series. We shall see.

My stockbroker asked me how I knew the two stock market crashes would happen, and I told him, "When the Monopoly play money starts jerking around the real money you're in trouble."
