Pink Full Moon 2017

These picture were taken at the Grand Canyon at Sunset on April 2017. Used Canon Powershot SX20IS to take these pictures..

April's full moon is known as the Pink Moon, but don't expect it to look particularly pink. It is named after pink flowers called wild ground phlox, which bloom in early spring and become widespread throughout the U.S. and Canada this time of year. In fact, the April full moon is the first full moon of spring in the Northern Hemisphere (it's the first fall season full moon in the Southern Hemisphere).
