Over the next few days I will be looking for the moon. Tonight the moon rose at about 96% illumination and tomorrow night it will be over 99%. The moon rises at 3:54 p.m. on Saturday and 4:42 p.m on Sunday. It sets at 5:13 a.m. Saturday and 6:36 a.m. on Sunday.
At 10:23 a.m. Sunday, the moon will be full.
There will be some clouds around all weekend.
Feeling so grateful to be able to take in this beauty with my morning coffee today.
These photos are of Cape Cod Bay taken from Long Beach, Plymouth.
It was the coldest morning I have been out with a camera since early March.
Yesterday was the coldest day since late winter. The wind was strong and seemed to go right through you.
But it was these same winds, I imagine, that gave such unique shapes and textures to the clouds in the southwest sky.
As the sun was setting tonight there was a heavy cloud cover except for along the western horizon.
It felt other worldly to be standing in the dark with the only light source in front not above me.
My time at the cranberry bog taking pictures of the milkweed made me think of Henry David Thoreau.
“Though I do not believe a plant will spring up where no seed has been, I have great faith in a seed. Convince me that you have a seed there, and I am prepared to expect wonders” –Henry David Thoreau
