Image Details:

This August, there were two full moons, and I was fortunate enough to see and capture both of them in two different locations, separated by 6,500 kilometers. I was on the South Pacific in the early morning of August 2. The full moonlight shone on the South Pacific, which was both strange and familiar. The moonlight is so familiar, but the ocean is so strange.
On the evening of August 31st, in Taipei, amidst the convergence of three typhoons, the full moon unexpectedly broke through the clouds. It was a blue moon but not a "blue" moon, the moon remained its usual brilliant white. The two big moons in the picture were taken separately with a telephoto lens and pasted together for comparison and record.
