Sky calligraphy and the moon over MtLawleyShire

Another night in mid December was another wonderful example of moon-enclouded.  The sky calligraphy looked too sparse to have an effect, though it was lovely:

cloud_1  cloud_3

to the west, the calligraphy was sunset stained:

cloud_2  cloud_4

the eastern skies were clear


but the sky calligraphy reached out


almost snared:

moon_2  moon_3

She escaped and began to take on a little colour from the dying day

moon_5  moon_7


moon_9  moon_10

moving through wisps of calligraphy stained with the ink of dying sunset:


moon_21  moon_22

then in the clearing sky, her colour deepened:

moon_20  moon_16

golden moon:

moon_11 moon_12

becoming silver:

moon_14  moon_15

a last ink-stained swirl of sky calligraphy


and as sky darkens and deepens, she shines:

moon_19 moon_24

silvered light:


and in her proper dark, in the clear sky, tonight’s beautiful moon:
