Beaver Moon

A change of scenery this month, the Beaver Moon was taken in Ashville, North Carolina and I was surprised to read that it is also considered a blue moon. The November full moon counts as a “seasonal” blue moon because it’s the third of four full moons to fall in between the September equinox and the December solstice, to read more.

November is the Beaver Moon, this was the time to set beaver traps before the swamps froze, to ensure a supply of warm winter furs. Another interpretation suggests that the name Beaver Moon comes from the fact that the beavers are now actively preparing for winter.

This is also the time when Thai people celebrate Loy Krathong.

It’s also known as the full moon festival where hundreds of traditional sky lantern or khom Loy were released into the night sky.

As for me, visiting Ashville meant visiting Biltmore Estate Christmas lights, more to come.

    1. Hi seeharhed, have you noticed I shot in Manual Mode. My first time ever and it came out a lot better than I thought. I had a little help thought, I met another photographer there and he gave me a 5 minute crash course on shooting Manual, I love it. šŸ™‚

  1. Great shots, Nye! You have blossomed and evolved into an excellent photographer.

    Have you ever thought about making a photo book via Lulu? It is free. You would make a POD (print on demand). You should check it out.

    1. Jeffrey, thanks for your kind comment. It’s going to be awhile before I feel comfortable doing that. It would be great to do one of Laos, but taking a trip there is a must before I could do that.
