Shine On, Harvest Moon 2009

Here's my attempt at capturing the Harvest Moon. Tomorrow night is the actual night that it will be the fullest but I wanted to try to get some good shots tonight. It's VERY cloudy tonight which is why it's so hazy looking. Hopefully tomorrow night will be better.





Shine On, Harvest Moon

The night was mighty dark so you could hardly see,
For the moon refused to shine.
Couple sitting underneath a willow tree,
For love they did pine.
Little maid was kinda 'fraid of darkness
So she said, "I guess I'll go."
Boy began to sigh, looked up at the sky,
And told the moon his little tale of woe


Oh, Shine on, shine on, harvest moon
Up in the sky;
I ain't had no lovin'
Since January, April, June or July.
Snow time ain't no time to stay
Outdoors and spoon;
So shine on, shine on, harvest moon,
For me and my gal.


  1. Cool! Great, now I'll have "Shine on, shine on harvest moon...da da da da..." (what comes after moon?)stuck in my head all day! :)

  2. Ann, I added the lyrics just for you! lol ~Linda

  5. Love your pictures. In western Washington we very seldom see the moon but this month we did and it was ohhh so beautiful!
