Driving home last night - 04.00 am in the morning after work - there was just the slightest cloud cover resulting in the moon having a milky halo leaving the result about three moon diameters wide.
I can only imagine the power of such a sight on primitive man and why celestial events become a subject of wonder and mythology.
It impressed me - even at 04.00 am.
Couldn't stop to try a photograph with three weary colleagues snoozing in the car alongside me
Just won a Fujifilm FinePix 602Z on eBay for £28.00.
Slightly dated technology, first released 2002, but still far superior to anything I've owned.
Particularly the 6X optical zoom capability drew me to it, and capturing sights like this will be exactly the purpose I intend to put it.
