When I got up today, I remembered that today’s photo assignment was “dark”. When I let the dogs out to do their thing, I saw that the stars were still out and the moon was shining bright overhead. I knew it was the perfect thing to snap a photo of for today’s assignment. One, because I love love love star-gazing, the moon, anything to do with the night sky. And two, because it wasn’t too cold to stand outside on my back step with my tripod and remote shutter release.
I love how the moon is causing a flare and has the burst look to it. While it was clear as a bell this morning, this evening is not proving to be the same. About 4:00pm, I looked out west and saw a beautiful sunset but I also saw a strange cloud bank slowly moving in.
This cloud bank made for a gorgeous sunset as the light bounced off of the water particles in the air. It also brought us some fog for a short time:
Ten minutes after I took these pictures, the fog cleared out and now the stars are shining. A strange but beautiful day where it seemed God was showing off with all the gorgeousness He brought us today.
