Capturing The Moment — The Full Wolf Moon   3 comments

Misc 01-27-13Image by kenne

Born in January, and given my independent nature, I feel a relationship to what some Native Americans called the Wolf Moon since it appeared when hunger wolves howled outside their villages. Technically the Wolf Moon occurred a little before midnight on the 26th. I seem to have more success in photographing the moon just before sunrise, so this Wolf Moon image was taken as it was about to set over the Tucson mountains.

Hunger wolves howl at the moon

A midnight high point.

  1. A beautiful capture! I’m attracted to the full moon too. I feel the presence of stillness in it and an essence of what is life.

    The first full moon of 2022 was three days ago, called the Wolf Moon. Per the Farmer’s Almanac, the Wolf Moon is a nickname given to a full moon that takes place during January. It’s named because wolves tend to howl more often during the winter season, which is always when this lunation occurs. It was long believed that wolves’ uptick in howling during this time of year was due to hunger, given the lack of food sources during the winter. However, biologists know now that howling is a territorial act that picks up during the colder months as a way for wolves to stake their claim and make their presence known. — kenne
