Did you know…

The full moon in May is a special event for any Buddhist for it was while meditating under a tree during the May full moon that Siddhartha Gautama achieved enlightenment and became Bhuddha (the enlightened one) some 2500 years ago.

I am particularly pleased with this photo as it is a single exposure and not a composite of two shots like my previous moonshot. While I found myself out of position I like the composition, especially the farmhouse and sheep in the fields.
