When Heather and I stepped out this morning at 6 a.m. for our walk the air was still and mild, there was a ribbon of barely visible cloud just above the horizon and no sight of the moon. High up the sky was clear and several of the constellations seemed near enough to touch. It was, in a word, beautiful.
Later, as I approached home I could see a faint glowing sliver just barely visible above the line of trees in the distance. It was the moon — the last tiny bit of it before the new moon. I rushed in the house to get my camera, knowing my paltry skills probably couldn’t capture it, but I was going to try, anyway. I’ve posted what I was able to get. It really was lovely, wish I could have done it justice.
Wishing everyone a lovely, gorgeous autumn day — those of us in the northern hemisphere, that is. The rest of you — enjoy spring!
