1st February

As only three turned up to be with JH, we decided not to venture out into a very cold, but bright day.
Among other things we looked at 'Super Blue Moon' photos and discussed the frequency of these moons. It seems there will be no full moon in February but two in March.
For the curious, the term 'Blue Moon' comes from Old English 'Blewe' which means dangerous or warning, as the phenomenon involves thirteen full moons in a year, which was considered a warning.
There was also a discussion on special effects using time lapse settings with camera movement, and how to make open water seem glass-like smooth.
We decided to review the possibility of an outside visit next time.
