Incredible moon photo - it looks so perfectly balanced and yet I swear I saw it wobble a little - it makes the eyes play tricks!! Gorgeous sunset, too.

Wasn't that moonrise fantastic! You have captured it so beautifully!

Shellmo said...

Both incredible! That moon seemed larger than life!

Leora said...

Both are beautiful. I like them together, the top is more yellow and blue, the bottom more purple and orange. You have a great eye for seeing beauty in the ordinary.

Ruth said...

I have never seen a moon like that. It is enormous!! It looks like a ball about to roll across the mountain tops.

Now that, lady is a vacant lot with a view! What a shot and such warm colors.

Celeste said...

Kathie that moon shot is amazing! It is so huge, quite incredible. Thanks for sharing.

I saw the moon rise that Sunday... phenomenal... coming up on the horizon, a giant globe in the sky. Great pics!

Wren said...

Nice pairing of pictures. The contrast makes both of them more intriguing.

Yogi said...

One of the sun and one with the moon. The moon photo especially is wonderful.

The first one was beautiful, the moon rise INCREDIBLE!

Once in a great while, I catch a moon rise like that hanging over Mt. Hood and I think all is well with the world.

Thank you for sharing~

Great moon rise! Happy SWF!

Could that moon be any bigger! It looks to be resting its head on the mountain. Great SWF captures.

Kathie, what a wonderful sunset. I have always loved how the setting sun laints the landscape particularly in arid areas.
