A fading moon




The top photo shows almost a full moon. It is a bit hazy because of smoke in the air from all the fires currently burning in Central Florida.

In the second photo, a dark cloud begins to move across the face of the moon.

As you can see, in the third photo the cloud is quickly enshrouding the entire moon - in fact, within a few minutes you could not see the moon at all. It was gone, leaving only an inky black sky.

Wonderful shots Jacob! I didn't realize there were fires burning down your way. I hope we start getting some decent rain soon!

Incredible photos. The series makes me think of a Caspar David Friedrich painting.

Isn't it amazing how quickly the moon changes its face, or disappears?!

Love the Moon over Ocala shots!

Can you hear the howling? :) I love your shots of the moon. I could never get that with my point and shoot.
