Did you catch the moon.....? Did you?
Happy New Year! Happy New Decade!
Wow! - memories of this Christmas/New Year holiday period will stay with me for a long time, for a variety of reasons. One incredible memory in particular was on Hogmanay, when out shopping for last minute supplies, I was privileged to witness probably THE most perfect, most spectacular full moon in the most beautiful blue sky, I have EVER seen. Unfortunately, I wasn't in the most ideal spot to photograph it (outside M&S, Braehead) but that didn't matter; I witnessed it and I was rivetted to the spot. I was ever so tempted to share the moment with frantic fellow shoppers as they eagerly rushed to pick up their ne'erday bottles or last minute packets of shortbread - to tell them to 'Stop'! and to 'Look'! - but managed to resist! Instead I took out my trusty wee camera and captured the moment - so glad I did - the sight was transfixing, amazing, incomprehensible!!
Did you catch the moon? I hope so. I'd love to see more pics of it, of what you saw and where you saw it - but in case you didn't catch it, here it is. Just WOW!!
