Artist's Description

lunacy is intermittent insanity, formerly believed to be related to phases of the moon. The power that causes the pull on the tides is believed to also affect the human body based on the amount of water in us.

On Dec. 12th, the moon reached perigee, making it 14% bigger and 30% brighter than lesser full Moons we’ve seen earlier in 2008.

Each month the moon orbits the Earth and on the 12th the moon skimmed by at its closest distance for the last 15 years.

The moon passed a mere 356,613 km away from us – 28,000 km closer than normal.

The 15-year spectacular occurred as the moon’s perigee – the closest point that it passes Earth – coincided with the full moon.

A full moon is magical in the sky over my home. I am far enough from the city that the sky shows the stars well. This morning the temp was 20 below without the 30 mph winds. Im just glad I could hold the camera steady enough. My hands were pinkish and frozen!

I started shooting around 7:30 and finished around 8:30 or so.

Shot in raw, updated to tungsten and landscape settings and enhanced blue coloration. The sky was this vivid, I just enahanced what was there a bit to match more of the nature splendor I saw with my eye.
