Black and White Square Moon and Trees – for a first attempt at a black & white, square photo challenge I chose a picture of April’s Pink Moon seeing behind trees, the featured image being taken by my daughter:
In Romanian folklore, Iana Sânziana or Ioana Samziana, was the Sun’s sister who ran away from him, afraid of his ardent love. She hid on a distant island, in a white monastery. The Sun looked for her all over the earth, and even between all the stars in the sky… so eventually she became the Moon, forever out of his reach.
April’s Pink Moon name comes from the pink flowers – phlox – that bloom in early spring. Other popular names for April’s full moon are Sprouting Grass Moon, Fish Moon, Hare Moon, Egg Moon, and also Paschal Moon because it is used to calculate the date for Easter (falling on the first Sunday after the March Full Moon – as long as the March equinox and Paschal Full Moon coincide).
The next full moon will be seen on August 3rd, the Sturgeon Moon.
Have you attempted any Black and White or moon / no moon square photo challenges?
