SkyWatch Friday: Sunset and Moonrise

Sometimes I forget to check on the sunset when clouds are moving in and storms threaten.

I almost missed this sunset but was glad I didn't as the incoming storm and setting sun made a dramatic combination.
A few days after the sunset above I caught a beautiful rising moon on a clear afternoon.
Then after it was dark I managed a night shot of the moon.

Lovely, mystical shots of the moon, Carver. I noticed a full moon last night, too, outside my door. It seemed fitting after seeing the lunatic behavior of people out on the streets of Vancouver after the Vancouver Canucks lost the Stanley Cup.

Your first photo is stunning. The sun and the clouds were showing a great light show.
The combination of the moon by day and by night on one day is wonderful.
Have a great weekend!

Lovely shots, Carver! I love the moon shots and it is neat to watch the sky when a storm is approaching. Have a great weekend!

The first shot looks like a man's silhouette with a yellow border. :)
All are lovely shots!!

Gogeous sunset, it looks like liquid gold!

I must admit I am a bit jealous of our night shot of the moon. I have had little luck shooting full moons here at home, though at the beach with the use of a tripod, I did pretty well. These photos are lovely...especially the first tow showing the sun meeting up with the storm. Amazing captures. genie

The layers of clouds and the dramatic light are wonderful. Just gorgeous.

That second sunset shot is really something,as though the surrounding leaves were about to grab the sunset and carry it away to some unknown place. Just think, no more sunsets.
