Photo #1386 – 08.31.12
Receding ocean waves, sandy shore, and a tint of blue.
Tonight is a blue moon, so if you are near the ocean, maybe you’ll see some waves as blue as in this photo…or maybe not. A blue moon occurs whenever two full moons appear in the same month, but they are pretty much the same color as any other full moon. However, it is possible to see a slightly blue-tinted moon following a large volcanic eruption or possibly even large forest fires, as the ash and/or smoke filters the light in such a way to make the moon appear blue.
