The harvest moon rises from behind a ridge in rural Douglas County near Roseburg on Wednesday, Sept. 22, 2010. The full moon nearest the autumnal equinox is known as the harvest moon. This year the event is being called the "super harvest moon" because the full moon coincides with the equinox which has not occurred for 20 years.

I also have prints of many of my animal and nature pictures available here.
