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.
