Pretty In Pink

Tonight was the full moon. April's full moon is named The Pink Moon, because pink flowers are in bloom now. And indeed it did look pink, and then turned to orange! We watched it rise over the mountains. These are straight out of the camera, I did not change any of the colors.

As always these are spectacular. I like how you always give us the name because other than the fact that it's a full moon I have no idea what they are.
