Full Moons in Canada

I was watching the full moon a few nights ago and started thinking about all the occasions where I have spent countless hours watching the full moon come up or go down. A few eclipses have been included in this quality time as well.

On doing a keyword search I found over 500 images of the full moon. While many are very similar I thought it would be fun to pull out a few of my favourites.

    Fishing boats do look good. The only issue I have with them is that I must have about 5,000 images of fishing boats and keep on wanting to catalog them properly.
