Moon so round and red…

Could you guess this is a setting moon? I woke up early to capture a good sunrise in Belgium and instead ended up with the capture of this setting moon. The eastern skies were cloudy and it was long after ten in the morning I got a glimpse of sun peeping from clouds.

The color of the moon surprised me. I have seen yellow moons and read many poems inspired by yellow moons… but a red moon!

The shot is taken from my hotel room which is facing the Antwerp port.

    Lovely moon shot, Indrani. I have seen such moons here in Australia, also. And then of course there is the well-known NEapolitan song "Luna Rossa" (Red Moon)! 🙂
