Skywatch Friday: Moon and Clouds

Moon and clouds, Ocean Isle Beach, North Carolina. December 22, 2010.

This is my post for Skywatch Friday, a meme for sharing views of the sky from all over the world.  To see more, or to join and share your own photos of the sky, click HERE.

One evening while Betsy and I were at the beach, an almost full-moon was playing peekaboo with the clouds.  I captured this picture from the balcony of our room.

    Fantastic capture and I love the moonlight and clouds — I think Gwen may be right — a few minutes more and you might have caught the dragon! Great way to end a day, with or without the dragon! Have a wonderful weekend, George!
