Default August Full Moon

This is the full moon from August its an HDR of 3 shots and they were handheld.
The interesting thing is that this "belly button" is always on the same position, they say that when the moon is full we always see the same side of it. I liked the details, enjoy.

Well done, beautiful shot. By the way, regardless of the phase of the moon, we only see this side of it because of the way it rotates as it revolves around earth. We never get to see the "dark side of the moon".

Thank you ! Thanks for the information saly i didnt know that. So the moon faces the earth always on the same side as it orbits around us. Then when the moon is not full we actually see the "sides" between the dark and the visible side ?
