Moonset at Sunrise

 

 

“Instant Karma’s gonna get you
Gonna knock you off your feet
Better recognize your brothers
Everyone you meet
Why in the world are we here
Surely not to live in pain and fear
Why on earth are you there
When you’re everywhere
Come and get your share”

~John Lennon

  16. Beautiful photo, Jane. I love this time of year and took a photo similar to this 3 years ago when I finished my last Graveyard shift. The layers of color in the sky are like dreamy watercolors.

  19. Nice going. A worthy successor to the famous picture of moonrise over Hernandez made by Ansel Adams, who grew up in San Francisco (and as a boy got his nose broken in the earthquake).

  31. What a beautiful scene! One of my favorite photos of mine is of the moon rising as the sun sets in the Himalayas – the opposite of yours, but a lucky convergence (and capture) either way.
