5:30am? It is very dark over here and I see nothing. I need a torchlight for the hiking which I have experienced once.

A great capture of the moon.
It looks like Aunt Martha's prediction is wrong, the day is almost done. I do hope Tyler doesn't try to hang on as long as his cousin Ron!

I've been to Arizona and loved the wild beauty of it. You have taken spectacular pictures here. Thank you for sharing them. Such a contrast to the gentler rise and fall of our landscape. Wonderful.

Cheers!

I like the little fluff of cotton wool up in the sky.

Merisi said...

What a dawning!

What really caught my eye is your gorgeous moonset picture, I have never ever seen anything like this and the way you captured it is nothing short of spectacular.

Good luck for your daughter!
My youngest daughter arrived 16 days past the due date,healthy and ready to capture all of your hearts. She still does, every single day.
