Greg Bishop wrote on October 24, 2018: “As the Hunter’s Moon first came into view, I walked down my street looking for interesting views. I saw many pumpkins out in expectation of Halloween, so upon seeing this eerie glow and spider webs in an old pine tree, I knew I’d found the perfect shot!” Thanks, Greg!
