Hunger Moon

The Hunger Moon  is the full moon that occurs in February and falls at the end of winter when game is scarce and predators are particularly hungry. Names for the moons varied between different indigenous peoples, but they carried similar meanings. The Hunger Moon was also known as the Snow Moon, Little Famine Moon and Bony Moon. In the past the threat of famine after a long winter was real, for people as well as for animals.

Storm’s a-coming

Dorset 2012

This was on the Jurassic Coast one summers day nine years ago. Its had been gloriously sunny up to this point but photographically this was the star of the day. I don’t recall getting wet but my sister’s car was nearby.
