The sun and the moon together...and we're balanced between them. Beautiful pictures Elk.

I noticed the moon yesterday too as I was walking back to my room, here in the cloud forest of Panama.

The sun and the moon together in the sky is very special. My daughter always comments to me when she notices and I have always told her that sometime the sun and the moon like to meet up to admire each others beauty.

Renee Howell said...

HI! Love it when that moment happens.

Day or night? Sun or moon? Together. Separate. Momentary visits.

I'm not going to tell you how old I was the first time I saw the moon and the sun in the same sky. It's too embarrassing, but just be aware that it certainly opened my eyes! Great photos, Elk.
