Blue Earth

This photo never ceases to amaze me... incredible!

So peaceful and tranquil, all alone in the blackness of space

The Earth, the Earth
Is big and bright
With the stars in skylight
Bright Earth, bright Earth
How lovely you are
I want to touch you
But you are very far

An early Harvest Moon

The Harvest Moon is very early this year and coincides with beginning of Autumn (23rd September this year)

This means that the Moon will rise directly in the East at about the same time as the Sun sets directly in the West. The last time this happened was in 1991 and will not be seen again until 2029.
This photo taken just as the Moon started to wane with the Canon EOS and 200mm lens.

The Moon was a beautiful sight making it almost daylight on that clear night!
