Sky Watch Friday #1: "First Quarter"


"First Quarter"
Raleigh, NC - October 2008 (Click to embiggen)

Sky Watch Friday

Ever since man first noticed the sky above him the Moon has held him in its thrall. It's been the inspiration for myth, song, and romance from time immemorial. Calendars in some parts of the world are based on lunar cycles. It governs tides, steals hearts and captivates imaginations.
And on this October night, it peeked through the trees into my backyard and invited me to do a little photo shoot with it. And who could resist such a charmer?

Fabulous picture. It reminds me of a piece of cheese which I would love to eat right about now.

Er...okay, let me wake up for a minute and quit thinking about food.

Breathtaking.
