Just Being in the Moment

Boyers Mill Sunset The almost full moon was set to rise tonight at 8:09, so I set up my camera in my usual spot overlooking the farm on Boyer's Mill Road. The farm has been sold and will soon be developed, so I take as many opportunities as I can to catch the moon rising over the farm. In the future, the moon will rise over a sea of rooftops instead of over a pasture with cows grazing in the waning light.
Clouds obscured my view of the moon, but as the sun set behind me, the clouds took on hues of yellow and pink and purple. The cows moved a little closer to the barn. Flocks of blackbirds crossed the sky in front of me. A gentle breeze cooled the air around me.
Even though I did not see the moon, the scene in front of me was even more beautiful and peaceful than what I had anticipated. It was enough. It was more than enough. Good night, moon, wherever you are!

Great photo ops are disappearing fast. You're right shoot them every chance you get. I spent one whole day riding every access road in Accomack County Virginia a couple years ago. There was only one derelict boat to be seen.
