Blood Moon (Hunter's Moon)
|[ Sizes: Orig | Med | Small | Thumb ]|
The first full moon following the Autumn-Equinox full moon (i.e. Harvest Moon) is known as the Blood Moon or Hunters' Moon. Nearing the Winter season, the Blood Moon got its name from the custom of slaughtering one or more animals for Winter provisions. Shot with a Nikon D700 FX, 300mm f/4 lens, on a tripod with a 1/800 shutter speed, f/10 aperture, ISO 1600, -1.7 EV, center weighted metering (should have been spot metered).
