Lighting up the clouds and other fragments

Over the past week I have been taken by how the moon and sun play with the clouds. I was woken one morning at 4.30am by Fiona 'sharing' the beauty of the setting moon with me - and of course I had to get out and capture images of the moon as it played hide and seek with the clouds and vice versa. I loved the way the light of the moon bounced off different layers and types of clouds. Moon photos taken with the Canon Powershot.

One afternoon and amazing fay of cloud fragments was set ablaze by the setting sun.

This morning I started my walk in darkness and was offered the spectacle of the moon through the tree at the top of the block; and the morning star through the powerlines on Treehaven way.

After my exercise the sky was blue and the moon hug silver against the sky.

The dandelion gone to seed was brilliant in the soft morning light.

As was this brave rose of winter.

Looking up and looking around fills the senses and the soul.
