I have been up since shortly past midnight. At 12:13 AM a strange orange glow caught my eye thru the bathroom window. After accomplishing my mission, a commonplace midnight rendezvous, I stepped outside to see what was going on. Foggy eyes I saw the moon shining thru the high-level smoke from several wildfires. I hurried back in and grabbed my camera with the 200X zoom lens, preparing to play midnight paparazzi. I realized it was not a real blood moon, just a fake, and just another bloody moon filtered thru the smoke, but my desire to document such a sighting overruled my need for sleep. Once I had the backlighting, the distance from the porch light right, I was able to get a focus and snap this photo. Not until a car went by, no doubt an early morning shift worker, did I realize I was wearing only my night shorts, no top. I worry he may have seen my legs in dire need of a shave. Oh well, life goes on. Sometimes I forget I am not living on a ranch.
