Winter fast approaches

Yesterday, Wednesday, was a cold day, frost in the morning (which I missed taking a photo of) and bright but very cold most of the day. I did manage to get a good photo of the moon at 6.00 pm, though, which I am quite pleased with. I rested my camera on a post to steady it, and took it on full zoom

 I was cycling home after taking my grandson back to his place and the sky was bright with the setting sun but the moon was so visible in the pale sky.

I love taking sky pictures, I love how each time it looks so different.

No those marks aren't scratches they are the vapour trails from planes set against the red of the dying sun.

I must remember to get some lights for my bicycle, before the clocks change at the end of the month, otherwise I will not be able to use it much as the days get shorter.

Yes, we've been feeling a nip in the air too! No need yet to scrape the car, though. (Cycling isn't an option unfortunately when I need to get my laptop and work bag to school with me!)

Love your sky pictures - I love skygazing :-)

Love the aviation fireworks and that moon shot is just stunning!

A place for me to put the pictures of layouts I have done that I am pleased with, to put in the poems I write and to add snippets of things that have caught my eye
