Beautiful End of the Day

Last weekend I went out stargazing/meteor watching with my mom at a spot out in the country we know of. While we waited for the sky to get dark and the stars to come out, there was this beautiful sunset. I am glad that I got this photo, because shortly after this was taken, the moon actually went down!!!


  1. Simply charming photo. Was that the night we were supposed to get meteor showers? Well, somebody here couldn't stay awake long enough to know whether or not we got them.

    BTW, GO BEAVS!! :)

  2. Am reminded of the Grateful Dead's "Terrapin Station" lyrics:

    "Counting stars by candlelight
    All are dim but one is bright
    The spiral light of Venus rising first
    And shining best
    Oh, from the Northwest corner
    Of a brand new crescent moon
    Crickets and cicadas sing
    A rare and different tune...."

  3. Beautiful photo with that moon shot! I missed the showers and I normally love watching them. Fell asleep!

  4. Nicely framed by nature. A great beginning for stargazing.

    I also went to see the Perseids this year & it was awesome, wasn't it?

  5. I love the sky colours and moon's glow. When we were camping on the shore of Skagit River while kayaking we saw it through the trees. At first we thought it was a cabin hidden nearby, but watched it slowly disappear. - Margy

  6. Gorgeous capture! Love the moon! I've been trying to get a decent shot of the moon this week and have gotten a couple of interesting ones, but this one is superb along with the colors and the trees silhouetted against the sky! Hope you have a lovely weekend!


  7. I love photos of the moon, but this one is special because of the sunset colours!!!

  8. Super shot of the treestops sky color and the cresent moon. Love it. I was out too and the sky was gorgeous. Did you see the meteors? MB

  9. Great shot - thanks for the recent comment on my sithenah blog - note that on the aminus3 platform html links don't work and your comments containing same get marked as spam.

  10. Exquisite. This looks like a perfect design for a woolen blanket, and I mean that in the best possible way.


I appreciate everyone that stops by to check out the Mt Hood to Portland, Oregon area through my photos ... Have a wonderful day!
