Fog dome and moon pix

Early one morning a couple weeks ago, after a bit of rain the day before, I took Mr. Darcy out on his morning walk.

I was startled to see this dome of fog on a distant hillside. I'd never seen anything like it. The hilltop at that particular spot is flat, not domed, so the fog was making its own dome.

Way cool.

A couple days later, I got up very very early and saw a beautiful full moon just setting. Following are the shots I took as it progressed.

Added bonus: a bit of sunset color.

Despite chaos and strife, war and loss, it's still a beautiful world. Sometimes it's hard to remember that, but it's what keeps me going.


  1. The pictures are beautiful, as always. :) The moon ones, especially, are amazing. People often need very nice equipment to get pictures like that!

    As for the world, we need to hold on to what is true and good if we are to win. I believe we can, but it's a long battle.


  2. Thank you for sharing Patrice. These are beautiful.

  3. Your photos are beautiful. I've never been able to get a good one of the moon.. It is tough to remember some days what a beautiful world this is, but it most surely is.

  4. Good reminder.
    Have a beautiful day!

  5. With what did you take the moon pictures?

    1. Just my little pocket camera. It's a Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS50.
