The Blue Moon

Here is the blue moon that was setting on Camelback Mountain on New Year's Day.

A blue moon means that we had two full moons this past month.

This is also what winter looks like in Scottsdale.

Visitors love to come to our metropolitan area during the winter months. We have many people from Canada visit, as well as from the mid-west of the United States.

Check out our travel photos of the Recoleta Cemetery in Buenos Aires, Argentina at Viva la Voyage!

Fantastic shot of the blue moon and the landscape. I loved getting up early to gaze at the moon, even in our snowy landscape!

As cold as it is here (50-60), the beach is full of tourists.

Wonderful sight indeed.

Thank you also for explaining that 'blue moon' as I read it many times somewhere else, and finally it was you who did tell me of its meaning.
Please have you all a wonderful Wednesday.

Beautiful colors and blue moon. Thanks for explaining. I always forget what it means. We missed it due to clouds and rain.

Fabulous! Thank you so much for sharing the Blue Moon -- we had massive, thick clouds for that very special event. Happy New Year, Julie!

Didn't know what a blue moon was. This one looks very special in your landscape.
