SNOW MOON SETTING OVER GLOUCESTER PHOTOS

Snapshots from the time lapse filming – The day before the Nor’easter Riley, the early morning air was so still and calm, I was able to photograph while filming. That isn’t always the case because the slightest wind will jostle the movie camera and wreck a time lapse. Usually, you have to hold the tripod down with a death grip to get a good time lapse.

TIME LAPSE VIDEO: SNOW MOON DESCENDING OVER BEAUTIFUL GLOUCESTER HARBOR

The full moon of February is most often called the Snow Moon, but some Native American tribes called it the Hunger Moon or the Storm Moon. After this past week’s nor’easter, I think perhaps Storm Moon is most apt. The full moon actually took place over the cusp of February 28th and March 1st, and just as it occurred in the month of January 2018 when we had two full moons, the end of March will bring a Blue Moon.

December Frost Moon Over Gloucester Harbor

One more photo from December’s Frost Moon at dawn. The moon was rapidly loosing color in the sun’s first light, but still beautiful I think.

Saturated Sunset Over Gloucester Harbor

Gorgeous sunset over Gloucester Harbor and Rocky Neck, with the colors of the sky flowing from red hot reds and oranges to soothing shades of violet pinks and blues. 


Within moments, the sky’s hues changed from orange to violet. FV Pioneer in the foreground.
