East & West

"In the sky, there is no distinction of east and west. "  Buddha

A nice quote to share with our sky watching friends who like to capture those moments when the sky is putting on a free show for us all. Like this one from my early morning walk watching the sun and moon slip off in different directions and thinking of all the places I would like to travel.

Beautiful shot and quote to go along with it. I hope you get to make it to the Cape too, but it looks like you're in a great spot.

Those who are willing to drag themselves out of bed early and venture forth with camera in hand can usually find something photogenic along the way. You surely did!

PLANETS HURTLING THROUGH THE SKY

Planets hurtling through the sky,
Can you tell me one thing: Why
Are you intent on fleeing
Far from human sight and seeing?

Beautiful photo!! The sky can really "put on a show" sometimes. Definitely worth getting up and out in the morning to see a beautiful sight like that. Mickie :)

Simply stunning, Mandy! I hope you have a fabulous time when you return home, and you capture lots of beautiful skies while here!

I started a new photo blog which is much easier for me to maintain (the link is the latest post on my blog). I felt badly I hadn't been around to blog much, and I wasn't leaving many comments for my blog friends (my work had taken over much of my free time).
