These are my pictures of the blue moon over Lake Elsinore. To take these pictures, I made a pre-planned stop on my way home near the Lookout Roadhouse on the mountains overlooking Lake Elsinore on the eve of the Blue Moon.
Blue moon is not really blue. It just means that it was the second full moon in one Gregorian calendar month. Most of the time there is one full moon in a Gregorian month, but because the lunar month is 29.5 days long, sometimes there are two full moons in a month.
The images were taken on a tripod mount. Some tweaking was done in gimp to enhance the images.
Single frame of the blue moon over Lake Elsinore; minor contrast and brightness adjustments were done; the image was res-sized and jpeg compressed with gimp.
Exposure: 20mm f/5.6 1/8s ISO-800
