Beauty in Unexpected Places

Dusk, and a hazy springtime moon is framed by the new leaves of the oak tree in our garden.


  1. Oh that is just gorgeous! It looks like a velvet backdrop. Lovely.

    PS:I love hearing about travels...I've taken my bonine and I'm ready!

  2. What a beautiful sky

  3. I love this. Was the sky really that color, or did you play with it a little. Fabulous!

  4. Glad you like this pic, ladies! It really was that colour, the colour was 'chasing' the sun down - I think it was the thin, high cirrus catching the last of the red sunset...

  5. you DO have the eye, dontcha, Katherine. that shot is good.

    did you use a filter on the color? the sky color is weird. i like it. :-)

    thanks for sharing


  6. Beautiful!
