Looking up - feathers and moon

The morning walk this morning was absolutely gorgeous. It started in the near dark; but there was moonlight.

And then as I walked the morning gave way gave way to a sky filled with wisps of cloud - some reminded me of feathers floating from the sky. And what started as whips of white were lit up by the rising sun.

The morning moon still hung in the sky - but now a blue sky with cloud wisps.

Over the last week I have captured a couple of other phases on the moon.

First a setting full moon.

And a moon morning moon on the wane.

And just for a smile I had to add this photo of a little visitors perched on top of one of the maples down by the rock river.

Amidst the stress there can be the calming beauty of nature.

  1. Beautiful, Barry! And, I applaud the motivation to get up before light and walk. I can motivate to get up at dawn, but not before!
