Wordless Wednesday

We had a lunar eclipse last week that we woke up very early to see. Much of our world was under the cover of clouds but the moon found a clear spot of sky to shine. It didn't quite reach totality before it dropped below the horizon.


 

Soon after the moon set, the sky began to get light. A mountain bluebird appeared and began calling from a treetop.

It was worth getting up so early to see the mountains with alpenglow.

This post was not so wordless today but I needed to explain the photos!

  10. Down here, the hours before the eclipse were stunning, that huge moon, some talented photographers posted their photos, I couldn't get a great view, but the next morning it was still shining. Love your snow tops with that glow, beautiful.
