  1. Hello sunrise, goodnight moon! Great photos. Don’t let the small stuff get to you. Enjoy that beauty! 🙂

  2. You’re very kind. That was the only decent shot I got of the moon. Living here it helps to sort what is important from what is not, I guess! Tonight I went with a friend to watch the moon rise again. Lack of tripod meant that every one of my photos was a dud, but I realized it, and just turned off the camera and breathed it in instead – Much as I love taking photos, I do believe that sometimes the camera gets in the way of real appreciation!
