A gift

The moon

Nestled in the lilac velvet of a sunrise

Is a gift to be enjoyed greedily

Purple sky

As the rising sun

Casts its glorious rays

Lighting up leaves like torches

Autumn moon copy

And the moon – sinking rapidly –

Throws back the sunbeams

On the silken waters.

Moon wide shot

  2. I love the transition that occurs in the colors and brightness between the first shot with pre-sunrise dawn and moonlight to the very next shot once the sun peeks over the horizon. You’ve a lovely canvas to work with where you live. As always, outstanding shots, and thanks for sharing.

  13. Ahhh… October’s wonderful “Hunter’s Moon” – it looks so beautiful, Fi. This month’s full moon is no brighter than the other full moons in a calendar year, but it always seems so because of the position of the ecliptic in the sky in late autumn up here. You’ve really done it justice.
