Mysterious moon, morning and moody mountains

About a week ago I was fortunate enough to capture a rising moon with some very black cloud layers racing across it - certainly gives the moon a mysterious look.

The early morning today was cheered by carolling magpies; and a new orchid bloom on the book wall.

When we arrived home late yesterday afternoon it was threatening to rain at sunset - a very moody western storm sky.

Just amazing what nature offers - I never take it for granted.


  1. Incredibly atmospheric photos. Thanks!

  2. wonderful photos Barry. Love the last one too of the moody sunset. Soft and strong at the same time.

  3. Really gorgeous, B, and as for the orchid, fuelled by books... Wonderful photos!

  4. Hi S, SB & C - thanks for checking out the moon shots. S - you are correct - the atmosphere offers the opportunity we but capture the magic sometimes. SB - that sunset was such a mix - as you say soft yet threatening. C - I'm hoping the spring will see more book fuelled orchids appear. All - peace. B

  5. Very nice view of that wonderful moon and exquisite tones in B & W, very good pictures!

  6. L - thanks for your encouraging photographic comment. B
