The evenings are getting lighter, hooray! I am sure the recent ‘reminder of winter’ will not be the last one this season. For now, enjoy a view of the snow and sunset, looking over Horsforth from the soon-to-be-no-more Woodside Quarry. Enjoy.

Colour, again… Super Wolf Blood Moon

2019

So this past weekend was a full moon, not just any ordinary full moon though. A ‘Super’ moon, so called because it is at it’s closest to the Earth, and appears bigger, especially at moon rise. And then, the Native American’s called the January full moon ‘Wolf’ moon. And the blood? Well, a total lunar eclipse – when the moon is fully in the shadow of the Earth – usually results in a red-hued moon during totality. Hence the ‘blood’.

Enjoy the Super Wolf Blood moon here, find the science elsewhere… 🙂

Colour.. but of a different kind

2018, City, Urban

Autumn is hands-down may favourite time of the year. I was reminded of this earlier today, thanks to a mid-afternoon bike ride through Roundhay Park and Gledhow Valley Park. The afternoon sun shone, and the leaves were a riot of colour. I wished I had my camera – well, the REAL camera, not the puny little thing that comes with my phone!

Then I remembered this picture, taken with my phone: a riot of colour, but of different kind. That’s me told!
