Heavenly Bodies

I was out on the deck yesterday morning, taking pictures of the sunrise, when I noticed the moon overhead . . .
The waning crescent seemed to smile and blush at the sun's arrival. . .

 Up and down my camera swiveled . . .
As the sun grew brighter . . .
And the sky went from pale gray to blue . . .
The moon began to fade,  ceding the stage to the new born day.

You put things so beautifully Vicki. I love to see the moon in the daytime - almost as though she's so enthralled at the view of earth below that she forgot to go to bed.

It's always nice to see various shots of sunsets. It's difficult to choose which one is the best here as the varying light puts it's own mark on the photos.
