Harvest Moon

The Harvest Moon is the full Moon nearest the start of fall or the autumnal equinox. The Old Farmers Almanac says that the Harvest Moon is so named because:
“‚Ķfor several evenings, the moonrise comes soon after sunset. This results in an abundance of bright moonlight early in the evening, which was a traditional aide to farmers and crews harvesting their summer-grown crops. “
I was disheartened when I began photographing, thinking that the clouds would “get in the way” of the moon. On the contrary, the drifting cloud cover lent the moon a dreamy and evocative atmosphere.
