Back to the Moon

Have you taken time
to notice the moon this
past week?

I have.
I'm certain this is a new addiction for me
but I can't help myself.
It has been so big,
so bright
and
so beautiful in
the winters night...
and morning!




It's a great way
to escape the hustle and bustle of the season,
even for a few brief moments.


I espeically like my smoke stack in these two.



I do love the night.

Lynne said...

Me too Jill! I wish I could get some pictures, I tried and mine don't look GORGEOUS like yours!

Michaele said...

We have had some outstanding moonlit nights too. But my camera would never do it justice. I like your last sentence.

Just driving home the night before last I turned a corner and was in awe of the full moon right in front of me...so big and bright against a clear deep blue sky....Gorgeous....by the time I got in the house, rushing around I forgot to go back out and take a pic :( so glad you did. Warm Hugs,

The other morning, I heard there was an eclipse and I had been up but missed it! Can you believe it?

I hope you're having a beautiful Sunday.

Beautiful. I would have had a picture of the moon setting yesterday morning..if my camera battery hadn't been dead... :(
Thanks for sharing yours!

Donna said...

Gosh, and here I thought I was the only one who loved to take photos of the sunset, moon, beautiful evening and night time shots! It's such a peaceful time for me, even when the kids are around!

Your photos are wonderful, Jill, and I love stopping by to see them. The ones you've shown us with the moon through the trees, these with just a hint of clouds or smoke from the chimney ~ beautiful!

Blessings,
Donna

I love looking at a big full moon, we have had a couple of nights when we could see one.

Ms. Jill
My mom is moonstruck too. Last night's moon actually had a gold hue to it...great shots.
Hugs Madi

Nice photos, Jill!

I've noticed the moon looked like it had a halo around it last night.

The moon can have so many different looks-very nice photos-eerie, mystical, and very beautiful. Thanks for your nice comments. I can't take credit for the words this time (and I should have put who they were written by), but I thought they went nicely with the photo. Have a terrific week. Mickie :)

I have notice, usually when there's a full moon means a rough day at school, the kids are wild. I never believed that a full moon makes people act different until I started working in a school. Beautiful pics

Chatty Crone said...

So you were mooned! lol sandie

I've been noticing the moon too, and have been so taken by the moon rise in the evening the last couple of nights. It's really beautiful, and you practically don't need a light outside at night because it's so bright.

Paula said...

Nothing like stepping out in the crisp night air to just gaze up at the moon for a few minutes.

Blessed Serendipity said...

Funny you should ask Jill. I was just looking at the moon tonight too. So gorgeous and luminous.

xo,
Danielle

Teresa said...

The moon was gorgeous and every time I saw it I thought of you!

Furry Bottoms said...

I have definitely been noticing the moon this week. So beautiful and luminous!

ღ Life According To Milo ღ said...

I always love your moon pics. : ).. Mine never turn out that well!

Great moon shots :-)

You asked about the truffles. Store them in the fridge. They last ages. I usually make mine right after Thanksgiving, and we've eaten leftovers into January and they still taste perfect.
