Weekly Photo Challenge: Serenity

 

In the quietness of those few brief moments just before the break of dawn

when the deep, rich color of dark sapphire paints the sky

and the first hint of the new day teases just below the horizon

serenity is found.

There was the most beautiful sliver of a crescent moon twinkling in the eastern sky just before the sun came up yesterday morning, it made the moment all the more lovely and serene.  ❤

 Happy Monday, hope you have a wonderful day and week ahead!  May it be filled with beautiful moments of serenity, and with…

    • To borrow your phrase… “I think I just lucked out.” 😉
      Actually, I used my Mom’s camera for this shot because it seems to work better for darker scenes, although I still couldn’t get a decent close up shot of the moon. Thanks so much Loisajay! 🙂

  10. Oh my goodness, how uncanny! I just took a similar photo of the crescent through the tree, with Venus, on the pitch blue morning! I think it was Thursday morning, not too sure. I hate trying to capture the moon, she’s so elusive! Your photo is wonderful, as always!

    • Funny! Hey… great minds… 😉
      I know… the moon is so elusive! I tried to zoom in for a couple of close ups, but they didn’t turn out, as usual. I was happy to get this far away shot though.
      Thanks Joey!
