Skywatch Friday: Moon Over the Glade

Moon over Fairfield Glade, Tennessee. July 27, 2012.

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.

I must admit that I’m a sucker when it comes to seeing the moon in a blue sky.  I can’t resist taking a picture (or several).  Last Friday the moon was almost overhead as the sun was setting.  The clouds to the east had a pretty peach glow from the setting sun.

Sometimes the clouds got in the way, but even then the scene was pretty enough that I kept snapping away.

A few minutes later the clouds and sun were both gone and I concentrated on the moon itself.  I must admit I like the craters I captured at the boundary between the dark and light sides of the moon.


Betsy enjoying snow in the mountains of Virginia. She was as beautiful then as she is now.

Someone is having a birthday on Sunday.  I can’t tell you who it is, but I will give you a couple of hints —

Hint #1: She still likes snow.
Hint #2:  She’s my Beautiful Bride.

I know it would make her very happy if you would pop over to her blog, Joyful Reflections, and wish her a Happy Birthday.
