Sky Sunday

The sky's beauty truly shines in the desert. Here was the moon setting over a sculpted rocky cliff.
And Shyla standing in the desert with the red cliffs and blue sky behind her.
Millions and millions of stars shined each night. The Milky Way...
A Shooting Star over a cliff...
One night, the clouds rolled in while my camera was busy taking star photos as I slept. A rumble of thunder and flashes of lightning awakened me. I rushed out to save my camera from the rain that was about to fall, and I discovered that my camera had captured the cliff at the instant of a flash of lightning. It turned the cloudy sky purple.
What an incredibly beautiful world we live in!
