Three or More Tuesday

Photobucket
We have always been completely entranced by the glories of God's magnificent creation.   The beauty of the earth and the heavens enchants  us so we take advantage of every opportunity to  partake of any unusual phenomena  in creation and this past weekend we experienced the Super Moon... We drove up on the Blue ridge Parkway to  a wonderful overlook that captures the setting sun to thew est and the rising moon to the    east...  Situated on a ridge  that overlooks Bedford County,  we arrived right as dusk fell.

After about 15 minutes the evening shadow lengthened and the moon began its lazy ascent into the bare tree branches.  I hung   there like a fiery balloon caught up in the trees for some time..   My camera would not capture the rosy fiery hue that spread around it in the navy   blue night sky...

The lights of far away Bedford lay just beneath the rising fireball...  so deep was its hue  it tantalized the eyes!

It was hard to leave our perch on the crest of the mountain  but we had a distance to travel home... and as we turned into our drive,  the misty night was threatening to swallow up the evening pearl,  but the trees seemed to hold it there in their midst until we could capture one last frame!
