A day at the beach and a Red moon!

So for the past 5 consecutive weeks, it’s felt like autumn outside.  That’s not necessarily a bad thing, but it just hasn’t been hot enough to spend a day at the beach!  Well, I decided since today was *almost* 87 degrees, that I’d take advantage and go swimming!

I decided to take a camera with me which I almost never do, because sand is camera suicide.  I was careful though 🙂  Everyday, the sunset at Sandy Hook is always a lovely red.  Unfortunately the only day in August that is swim-worthy on the only day this year I take my camera to the beach; is the same day the clouds covered the sunset!  Pfffft, oh well!  However, the story doesn’t end here….

Felling a bit defeated, I decided to cut my losses and leave.  As I was making my way to the parking lot, I noticed that a portion of the sky was all red!  But dang it, the trees were in the way.  By accident, I turned the opposite direction and noticed the giant red moon!  JACKPOT!  With elbows on my trunk, my lungs full of air and Image Stabilization on my lens, I took these photos handheld (which is not easy)!
