I was shutting down my computer barely an hour ago (after all, I am still on holiday for a few more days), when I noticed the most extraordinary arrangement of clouds in the sky, beautifully lit by the setting sun. The scene and the quality of the light were more reminiscent of mountain light after a thunderstorm than an island evening.
Then the nearly full moon appeared from behind the clouds for no more than a few seconds. I grabbed my camera, fitted an appropriate lens, took position in my attic window and waited for Luna to smile at me again – and she did. I think it is a very good omen.
Today is the evening before Sturgeon Moon, which is the name of the full moon in August.
