Moon Over Lincoln, CA

I try to watch the sky as the sun sets, just in case there might be some spectacular color.  No color on this evening but I liked the way the elements aligned themselves in this composition.

The Man in the Moon is looking down on Lincoln, Martha - and he looks pleased!

Hi Martha,
I was about to say something similar to what Barb did. It does look like the moon is watching over the earth there. Beautiful!

Fabulous shot, Martha. The light you couldn't find in the sky is there, it is on the houses and the land, and it's a warm, warm light.

I forgot to look for the full moon with our first snowfall finally arriving. . . maybe it will be out again tonight.

This is a great shot - love the way you were able to balance the exposure for all 3 sections of the picture.

Splendid!

I really like this picture. The composition is unique, and the colors are lovely!

It's still beautiful. I remember taking a picture of a moon in the evening inside a moving car. Lolz. It came out different since the moon resembled like a zipping UFO. Hehehe. I could just hear the X-Files jingle playing in the background.

Nice photo, Martha. I like the colors in this. And the moon, too!

Linnea said...

I think it's fabulous! I love the soft pastel shades. Thanks for stopping by at mine. Enjoy the week.
