half a moon
It was enough to make me cut the walk short and come home for the camera. The dogs were most unimpressed. But I have never seen such a moon before.
The moon has been particularly delicate these last few nights, and clearly defined. Tonight as we set out into the sunset I was kicking myself for forgetting that the camera was not in my bag. Never mind, the sunset was beautiful but not more so than usual. The sun was a gorgeous strong pink but quickly disappeared.
And then as I turned to enjoy the valley, I saw the moon.
It was hanging from the sky, seemingly in a most unusual way. It was completely perpendicular to the horizon, and was (at least to my eyes) a perfect half moon.
Just when you think you know what things look like, they change on you! Isn't nature wonderful?
