Sturgeon Moon (2 images)

Today I discovered that August’s full moon is also known as the “Sturgeon Moon”. Some Native American tribes used this name because during the time of this full moon, the sturgeon in the Great Lakes were most readily caught. Other Native American tribes called this moon “Blueberry Moon” and “Green Corn Moon”.

There appears to be a bumper crop of kelp this summer, judging from the amount floating on the surface of the ocean. “Kelp Moon”, anyone?

fun with multiple exposures (3 images)

Inspired by Noortje Russel, I went out into the yard this morning to experiment with my camera’s multiple exposure feature. It was a very fun and freeing exercise, and although there were plenty of failed images, I can see using this technique in the future when I’m in the mood for “artsy-fartsy” photos. Ha.
