Stop It, You Two


Actually don’t stop.  I love to watch!

Over the past few days, I’ve watched the slow, sultry dance of the moon as she takes full opportunity of the pre-dawn light to get ever closer to her partner Venus.  This morning was cool and calm, and as I admired the two above, I realized that I had just enough time to mount the camera to the tripod.  Encounters, mounting, and privacy.  Was this photography or 50 Shades of Grey?

=)

This is the second time I’ve captured the two hanging out together in the early morning sky.  The first was exactly 30 days ago!  How far have we traveled around the sun since then?  How far has the moon traveled around us as we’ve traveled around the sun?  And how many kisses have the moon and Venus shared in relative secrecy while those below (not in the Army) slept in?

Three I’ll post today.

At sunset, I glanced outside the window and saw an amazing crescent moon.  I didn’t expect it to be either so low or so grande.  I was able to sneak out to capture it.  How thankful I am that it was clear and quiet tonight.
