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.
There has been so many. Some gentle, with just little wisps of color in the sky.
Some bold and bright.
At the right time you can even capture the moon during a sunset.
Or the last rays of the sun from under the clouds of a storm.
Peeking through the trees as another day closes.
Then at times enveloping the horizon with shades of gold and red.
This sunset started and looked for a moment like it might fade away as they often quickly do.
You can see here below it looks like it’s fading.
But this sunset went on and on!
With each passing moment it became more glorious and brilliant.
Until the entire western sky was covered in extraordinary color
At this point I simply stood in awe and watched as the colors gently faded from the sky.
The extraordinary thing to me is that no two sunsets are ever alike.
When you add a body of water to a sunset… oh my!
But what about a sunrise?
That first gleem of gold on the horizon
That’s slowly becomes brighter
Then becomes so brilliant, that though you cannot bear to look at it, you can feel it’s warmth on your face.
Clouds tattered in the sky become rainbows of light.
Like the Sun is reaching out for one last moment of glory
But the Sun finally sets and the colors in the sky fade
Then it time for the moon to shine
Reflecting in the water
A brilliant orb in the night sky
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.
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.
