These rain clouds creeping and crawling over the hills of San Diego during a winter storm always look eerie.

The landscape in front of those hills was just as eerie looking as the clouds on that day – out of this world.

There’s something quite eerie about fog, don’t you think?

Especially when the fog is very thick and you can barely see a few feet away.

I love the eerie effect of a full moon creeping out from between the clouds. Can you hear the coyotes howl?

Did you know that 2013 has seen three supermoons so far, and all in a row (May, June and July)? Those supermoons don’t have to look much bigger than a “normal” moon and honestly, it’s hard to see a difference with the naked eye. But it still gives me the opportunity to get a few nice photographs of the full moon. And that’s what I did a few nights ago.

The evening started out quite cloudy and the moon was covered with a big patch of clouds, even though the rest of the sky seemed pretty clear. It did make for some interesting photos of the moon behind the clouds.

As the night got darker, the clouds got thinner and I got to see more of the full moon.

The skies finally cleared up and I got a nice view of the supermoon of July 2013. If you didn’t get a chance to see it where you live, this is what it looked like.
