Finishing up the day at our Tacoma office, it’s January 11, 2017, going on 5:30 pm. I’m headed across town when MY OH MY the first full moon of the year is rising and totally glorious! It’s full, it’s huge, it’s super bright, it’s magnificent in the cloudless sky.
I want to hurry, thinking about a perfect place on Hilltop to get my shot. But it’s the afternoon commute and I’m hitting every single friggin' red light there is along the way. When I arrive at the ‘perfect’ location there’s now one small cloud in the sky. Guess where? :O) So this ain't 'the' shot, but what the hay, it's a cool scene this evening on South 21st and Tacoma Ave as I’m headed down the hill for the 509 and home.
Growing up in these parts we always called it by the indigenous nickname, the Wolf Moon.
