the harvest moon

last night it was too cloudy to see this supermoon, though i did manage to see it nearly at its fullest on sunday evening in suffolk, where the skies can be so clear you can see the stars twinkling.

last september i managed to catch the full moon known as the ‘harvest moon’ – so called because it signals the time when corn, pumpkins, squash, beans and wild rice – the chief indian staples are ready for gathering.   here is the full moon on the padstow estuary – its the view from my friends’ house – the red house apartment.  its actually one of my favourite images in my book stolen glimpses.

red house apartment

my friends jon and kim, who i stay with every year in padstow have now finished their gorgeous apartment to rent – with amazing views over the estuary of padstow, it is perfectly situated – a short walk from the quayside with all the restaurants and shops and a 15 min walk from the beautiful beach that i always photograph.  check out their website now.
