Harvest Moonlight - Kirkmains near Nisbet, Scottish Borders

A supermoon, not quite a harvest moon, casts it bright light over fields of ripe barley to light up what could almost be a daylight scene if it was not for the blue tinge in the moonlight. A supermoon occurs when a full moon coincides with the closest approach the Moon makes to the Earth, making it appear at its largest as seen from the surface of our planet. The "harvest moon”, in the northern hemisphere, is the full moon that occurs closest to the autumnal equinox in late September.
