Evening Moon

 

I was making supper at about 5:30 pm yesterday , looked out the window as I always do looking for photo ops lol and saw the moon . I grabbed my camera turned things on the stove down a bit and went out to get photos !

The sun was setting in the west and the moon  rising in the east , the sun set created a pink hue with in the clouds surrounding the moon  over our valley!

As Papa was driving to work  earlier this morning he said the moon was huge and orange and just above the horizon  I couldn't see it as I was lower  then  he was at the time and he was on a open road with flat fields around him ,  DARN IT ! That would of been awesome to capture and Papa didn’t have a camera in  the van . BOOHOO !

The sun is setting later and later every day  and rising earlier as well and the temps are warming up more and more .

Today it is to beCloudy periods  with cloudy period’s Temp +3 °C  or 34 °F Not to bad , at least the sun will be shining  and I am getting the spring cleaning  itch  and most of our signs of spring are already here  !

                          Well that's all for today  off to have my tea as it is 6:45 am .

                                   Until next time  hope you have a good day !

                                        Thanks For Popping By !

What a wonderful shot.

The same moon has been showing its face here and shining brightly. Night has been almost day.

We saw the moon the other night, it was so huge, and bright...

Wonderful to be able to see outside at dinner time.

Thanks for visiting and leaving such a nice comment about my 'Winter' pictures. Love your moon pictures with the pink clouds. Witnessing a beautiful sunrise or sunset always makes my day.
Have a Wonderful Day,

Beautiful pictures! Wasn't it nice today? I went out to the chicken coop without a coat, felt warm enough, too. Oh spring...soon, soon.

Beautiful moon! I was hoping to see it last night but it was just too cloudy.

Elaine, maybe Papa needs a small digital point & shoot that he can keep n the van for moments like he described. I have a couple of the Canon digital Elph cameras and one is permanently kept in my purse. Of course, if I leave home without carrying it, then I also leave the camera at home.
