Full Wolf Moon

Full Wolf Moon, Jan. 10: The Indians gave this name to January's full moon because wolf packs howled hungrily outside their villages during that time of year. According to NASA, tonight's moon will appear about 14 percent bigger and 30 percent brighter than some other full moons this year.

Thank you Robyn!!! That photo was done by taking 3 photos. One -2, one normal and one +2. I have a program that combined the 3 then I fixed the tone and here it is. :) It's called HDR. Fun to do.

Hi Carla, thanks for visiting my blog! I saw you had been there before, but could not find a way to respond to you, a little bit of searching and I located your blog! Now, I have saved you in blog favorites on my PC!

Your photos are beautiful! I see that you are doing the black/white quilt challenge, I have a friend Eileen of Eileen's Attic who makes quilts and she is working on that as well!

Wishing you a great day, now I know where to find you!
