Watching the Morning Sky

 Before Sunrise
moon and clouds


roof tiles shimmer in the moonlight


waning gibbous moon


Sunrise

looking west

After Sunrise

the moon, barely visible...


Have a wonderful weekend!  Linking to Skywatch Friday.

I have to find a new way to say... Beautiful post today !
Wednesday when the storm blew in and a deluge hit my home.... I started taking some photos all day as the sun, clouds, and rain blew in and out.
what a difference a hour makes.

You still take the best moon shots.

cheers, parsnip

I love that time of the morning there, where the sun is just below the horizon and bouncing its rays onto the underside of the clouds. There is nothing like it!

Very beautiful moon shots, too!
