Sunset–moonrise…cosmic balancing act

When I saw the sunset on the way back tonight, I had to find a place to pull (safely) off the highway and take a picture!  I drove on, but as the sun set, the moon rose in a cosmic balancing act on the opposite side.  Once again, I had to pull off, but the location wasn’t the best and the iPad couldn’t get a shot that did the moon justice.photo(395)

    Simply beautiful!

    • Thanks. I saw so many beautiful shots but while driving on a major highway, there are only so many places safe to stop and usually not places with great pictures. I’m just glad I could get these!

  2. I understand not being able to find a place that a picture will do justice to. I love sunsets, especially.

  3. For as many sunsets as I’ve seen, and as many as I will still see, they just never get old. So beautiful, so brilliant.

  4. I love the first photo, with the illusion that the sun is burning a hole in the horizon – although it would be horrifying if that really happened. But it makes an impressive image.

What do you think? I'd love to hear your thoughts on this, that or the other thing.
