Hunger Moon & Jupiter 2

Hunger Moon and Jupiter
digital photo, 2015

This shot of Jupiter rising with the Full Moon is mostly the same as the February 3rd Snow Moon in my last post... perhaps from a slightly different vantage point. On the sidewalk under the tree, the streetlights cast a warm glow on the trunks lining the parkway, exaggerated in my guerrilla post-processing methods. As I said in the first Hunger Moon post, the Full Snow Moon of February was also sometimes referred to as the Bone Moon by Native Americans, due to the heavy snows particular this portion the season that made hunting difficult, and survival may depend on utilizing even bone and marrow for soup.

Snow Moon & Jupiter

digital photo, 2015

Another from my shots of the Snow Moon and Jupiter rising on February 3rd. I affected this one even more than Hunger Moon in my last post, pushing my simple photo editor past the point of what some may feel acceptable digital noise levels, but I kinda like doing that (see Waxing Gibbous, June). The photo began to take on the look of a digital illustration of a snowy night as I further distorted it's levels, so I titled it after it's more common name.
