Strawberry Moon, The Halloween of June

The strawberry moon of June  20th and 21st, 2016 evoked memories of Halloween, at least as it presented itself in Davis, California. Shadows on the moon unnatural to its inherent craters and textures prevented a clear if cloudy view for the majority of the evening, giving a unique opportunity to photograph its effect on the atmosphere (inclusive of pollution) and minutia of the skyline. With a truly cosmic appeal, the view of the clouds alone was reminiscent of some of NASA’s more outstanding shots, magnifying the similarities between microcosm and macrocosm even more.
