Shine on, harvest moon: A sampling of stunning audience photos

We received a large number of harvest moon images this week, and decided to showcase some of the best shots.
Gene Herzberg's stunning capture over St. John's harbour is one of our top picks. (Submitted by Gene Herzberg)

Rosemary Clooney joined a long list of other performers when she crooned, "Oh, shine on, shine on harvest moon, up in the sky." 

A harvest moon is seen closest to the time of the autumn equinox, which was Sept. 23 this year.

In the past few days, we've witnessed several nights of incredibly beautiful moons right across the province — so we decided to feature some of the best images our audience sent our way.
