Sunrise, Sunset, with an occasional Moonscape!

My life on the road, with just Macha and I, began a year ago on the 16th of July.

I have been collecting pictures of glorious sunrises,  sunsets and even occasionally a moonscape all year. One of the best pictures of the moon that I have was taken by another camper.  Trust me, you will know it when you see it.  The rest of these are the best of those taken this year by yours truly.

I just wanted to share them with you. 🙂

Arizona is indeed known for the incredible skies in the morning and especially at night.

image

There has been so many. Some gentle, with just little wisps of color in the sky.

image

Some bold and bright.

image

At the right time you can even capture the moon during a sunset.

image

Or the last rays of the sun from under the clouds of a storm.

image

Peeking through the trees as another day closes.

image

Then at times enveloping the horizon with shades of gold and red.

image

This sunset started and looked for a moment like it might fade away as they often quickly do.

image

You can see here below it looks like it’s fading.

image

But this sunset went on and on!

image

With each passing moment it became more glorious and brilliant.

image

Until the entire western sky was covered in extraordinary color

image

At this point I simply stood in awe and watched as the colors gently faded from the sky.

image

The extraordinary thing to me is that no two sunsets are ever alike. 

image

When you add a body of water to a sunset… oh my!

image

But what about a sunrise?

image

That first gleem of gold on the horizon

image

That’s slowly becomes brighter

image

Then becomes so brilliant, that though you cannot bear to look at it, you can feel it’s warmth on your face.

image

Clouds tattered in the sky become rainbows of light.

image

Like the Sun is reaching out for one last moment of glory

image

But the Sun finally sets and the colors in the sky fade

image

Then it time for the moon to shine

image

Reflecting in the water

image

A brilliant orb in the night sky

image

Or perhaps just a sliver of light, in that dark night sky. With Venus as she dances her stately waltz around the moon, hovering close by.

image

So ends another incredible day on this journey we call life.  For me this has indeed become a great adventure! Thank you for allowing me to share it with you.

  1. Oh my gosh those pictures are stunning. I love camping by the river during a full moon. Takes my breath away. Thanks for sharing.
