Weekly photo challenge: Illumination

January 14, 2013 § Leave a comment

And another photo challenge. This week: illumination.
Here is my contribution. A natural display of light. Full moon over the Rimutakas in Wellington, New Zealand, with the faint lights of Eastbourne twinkling away beneath it.

And little did I know that there are moon dogs. And they are not just dogs that howl at the moon. There even are sun dogs. Why moon light phenomena are called ‘dogs’ I don’t know; but I would like to know. I’ve had a quick look on Google, but nothing comes up on the etymology of that phrase in only a very quick search. Does anybody know? In any case, dogs really are everywhere :)
