Shrouded moon, rust and rain

We have been having overcast days on the mountain - though others have had violent storms fortunately we have been having drizzly rain.

I woke at about 3am on Monday - the sky was still cloudy after rain but the moon appeared to be full. Muted moonlight was flooding the bedroom - so I got up and took a few shots - shared below.

The rain has helped the rust pile - I have a collection of circular saw blades that I intend to use on a portal - still need to get a couple of large timber slabs.

Because the rain has been gentle the rain drops have caught on the screen wire and spiders' webs.

Blossoms from our 'peace tree' at the front have been gently falling in the rain.

The valley looked ominous yesterday afternoon - but fortunately the destructive storm skated around us.

We now need a few days of sunshine to dry things out and get the garden growing - sounds like we are never satisfied!!!


  1. A stunning collection - moon, rust and raindrops, three of my favourite things. But oh, those rusty blades...

  2. C - thanks for you comment - those rusty blades are getting closer to becoming a piece of art - I won't change them much in the creation. Peace. B
