Pink Supermoon


A pink supermoon is not really pink. The name is a northern Native American reference to an early-blooming wildflower, ground phlox, and is first seen across North America as spring begins.

I was playing hide-and-seek with clouds when trying get the pink supermoon, but I was taken by the silver ‘moon’ lining on the clouds. So there is always a silver lining, even in the deepest, darkest of moments.

  1. Great job capturing the clouds, Pete, and the moon too. I was focused so much on the moon that I never managed to get a decent exposure of the clouds. I love too your thoughts on the silver lining and totally agree.

    1. Thank you, Sandra! 🙂 The moon is certainly a great attractor, inspriring, and a wonder to behold, even though one may have seen it hundreds of times 🙂

  2. Oh Pete, you know how I love the moon and I didn’t have the opportunity to get a proper full this month. This is fab, and the mooncloud is stunning. What a positive thought about silver linings.

  3. “Some things in life are bad
    They can really make you mad
    Other things just make you swear and curse
    When you’re chewing on life’s gristle
    Don’t grumble, give a whistle
    And this’ll help things turn out for the best
    And
    Always look on the bright side of life
    Always look on the light side of life
    If life seems jolly rotten
    There’s something you’ve forgotten
    And that’s to laugh and smile and dance and sing
    When you’re feeling in the dumps
    Don’t be silly chumps
    Just purse your lips and whistle, that’s the thing
    And
    Always look on the bright side of life
    (Come on)
    Always look on the right side of life
    For life is quite absurd”

    etc.
    The Pythons

    Nice capture of that silver lining, Pete. 🙂

    1. I thought this was from the Pythons as I read down more. Great lyrics, great song, and so much need in these times, so nice one, Steve! 🙂 Thank you! 🙂 I have a big smile!
