A Moon for Sky Watching

Did you see it this week?

A BIG ~ BEAUTIFUL MOON?


Photobucket

I did!
...And it took my breath Away...

After the moon obliged to another photo-shoot,
I thought
Maybe ~ A Moonlit Stroll?

And then the evening fire-whistle blew
.
...reminding me of the time...
I forgot we changed the clocks!

It was only five.

Moon!
You're so Early!


*Goodnight room,
Goodnight moon,

Goodnight stars, goodnight air,

Goodnight noises everywhere...


And a Good Sky Watching Weekend to you all !


Thank you to our Sky Watch Friday hosts: Klaus Sandy Sylvia Wren Louise Fishing Guy

Beautiful moon shot! Happy SWF.

mom, this moon picture is probably one of the best you've taken. The lavender, rosy purple-pink color of the sky coupled with the harvest pink-orange of the bright full moon is breath taking!! I saw it from down here too and didn't have my camera! The picture is heavenly!!! Happy Birthday and SkyWatch Friday =)

Oh my goodness...Goodnight moon is one of our favourite stories. My girls have it all memorized. Thank you for that memory. I need to go find our copy. Your image and words are lovely my friend.

Good Night Moon is my favorite children's book. Your photo is lovely. I hate it that it gets dark so early:(

I did see it! It took my breath away! It was good to "see" you today, too. I hope all is well. Be blessed!

Beautiful moon shot. Oh, the moon brings out the best in some of us and we love it. Here the moon is cloaked in semi-thick clouds tonight - darn it. Thanks.

It took my breath away, too. And I've been shocked all week at how early it is. (But I like it.)

Hi Maria,
Boy I wish that I could have used this photo for my last post. I had a hard time finding just the right moon photo. Yours would have been perfect. Beautiful, Maria!
Love Di

A beautiful capture! I took a few this month, but nothing good.

You have a nice weekend, too.

Last night we were at Kendall's last football game of the season and Larry told me to look at the moon. It looked just exactly like your capture this week.

Thank you for your sweet comments on That Was Then This Is Now and please don't stop praying for Jeff. He is improving but those old bad habits are so hard to change.

Hope your weekend is joyful! I know it will be because you are such a joyful person. God bless, Dianne

My husband and I enjoyed a full moon when we went on our cruise. It was amazing to watch the moon rise over the Atlantic Ocean. God's handiwork is breathtaking!
