Shine On, Harvest Moon


Sitting on the couch watching the Colts game Sunday night, the almost-full moon was shining on me through the front door window.

I couldn't resist going outside for a few shots.



Pretty amazing!!!

I certainly don't have the most sophisticated camera or lenses, but even so it takes a pretty good photo, especially when you consider that the moon's a mere 238,900 miles away from earth....


Kinda makes you feel small and insignificant.

And it was this very same moon that David marveled at on a bright clear night centuries ago when he penned Psalm 8...

"O Lord, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth!  You have set your glory above the heavens....When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in plac, what is man that you are mindful of him, the son of man that you care for him?"

I still marvel at its mystery. 

Shine on, shine on harvest moon up in the sky.  Shine on...

...shine on, harvest moon.
