Looking at the Sky on Friday #1



Calm at the end of the day. My first for this meme. After a blustery, rainy, and general not-so-nice day I saw the clouds from my back yard turn pink after the sunset. Then I noticed the moon and had to get a shot. And then last night the clouds were moving swiftly so I wanted to get a shot of them passing over the moon. I took this shot just as this cloud was getting ready to eat the moon whole. Enlarge to see teeth and all. To see all types of skies, turn to Crazy Working Mom.

Calm at the end of the day. I love your sentence and the photos suit it very well. Great first entry! Have a nice weekend :)

I like the night picture. The fair-weather cloude frame the moon so nicely!

Oh wow, the second picture is very cool. If you look carefully you can almost see a man with two outstretched arms as though he's about to grab the moon! Very cool shot. I love the colors in the first shot.

I am so glad you've joined us! What a great addition your photos will be. Can't wait for more.

Both are beautiful photos. The 2nd one looks like an an opened mouth ready to devour the moon. :)

Those clouds are so pretty. I'm always trying to get pictures of the clouds and the moon. It's just kind of mysterious. Good job.

Hi K.D, these are neat pictures with the moon. You have a better camera than I do as my moon pictures don't do well at all.
Happy SkyLooking, thanks for peeking in on my travel (Eiffel) sky and for your nice comment.
I'll peek back in your blog when I see a post (probably sky stuff).
