Twilight

10 minutes spent in the evening's quiet watching the moon rise in the southern sky is time well spent.

It's time to drink in the chilly stillness and watch the sky's colours shift gradually and gracefully.

Tonight, the crescent moon - a sliver of silver growing seductively by the day - reclines on a bed of blue. A wash of pink cloud changes before my eyes to a gentle grey. Pretty soon the stars will be out. The greatest show on earth surely?

Definitely! I love living in the countryside. Where else can you see the stars twinkling in the sky so bright.

What a lovely post! My youngest daughter has always loved the moon and stars and she is very impressed by the moon in your sidebar! I might have to get one!

Thanks for visiting me!

And what a moon it was! We stood outside star/moongazing wrapped up in our fleeces until we got neck ache! Wish I could get the hang of night photography.......x

That's so weird - that could have been last night's sky here in Devon over the farm. After huge bonfires of brashings the wee moon and pink skies did their best to entertain us.

Absolutely agree. It's lovely to take the time to appreciate things like this that are with us unnoticed so much of the time. Great picture, too.
