Blue Moon 2012

Once in a Blue Moon

Blue Moon 2012It kind of sucks that the blue moon isn’t actually blue. I am pretty sure I remember seeing a blue colored moon at least once in my life.

I recently purchased a new lens for my Canon 60D APS-C SLR, the Tamron SP 70-300mm f/4-5.6 VC USD (yes, its a full frame capable lens on a crop body), so I decided to take some test shots.

The photo here is of the 2012 Blue Moon, taken by me, on August 31, 2012:

While not blue in color, the ‘blue moon’ is the second occurring full moon in a single calendar month.

It’s handheld and it’s JPEG. I like the lens but as you can see, it isn’t perfect.
