Crescent moon through blossoms. I love to line up the moon through the trees in the garden and watch it set across the Taos Plateau. Tonight was special as the crab apple tree had begun to blossom. What a difference a day makes from the cold rain yesterday. In this image you can see “earthshine” illuminating the rest of the moon that isn’t lit by the sun. Here is an image from May 12, 2009 of the full moon and blossoms. I think with all the warm weather the trees are blooming early this year. Thanks for looking.
Belfry, Raven, Full Moon, Garcia, Colorado. The almost full moon, a belfry cross and a raven tonight in Garcia, Colorado. We made an evening drive to watch the moon rise over the Sangre de Cristo mountains in southern Colorado. It turned out to be a beautiful evening with crisp winter light on this scene. I like to think the raven enjoyed the view too, but I doubt it. He sat, perched there, faffing the whole time.
