(In the interest of full disclosure, I must admit that this picture was actually taken earlier this week – I hope this doesn’t disqualify me from participating in the official SkyWatch Friday deal.)
I don’t take too many sky shots, but I noticed the moon rising while I was under my contorted filbert (Harry Lauder’s Walking Stick) attempting to prune out its straight suckers. It was an un-fun task that I did rather poorly, but at least I was rewarded by a glimpse of the moon’s pale face on a warm late-winter day.
Here in Seattle, the sky was clear and blue again today. It was frosty this morning, and an unseasonably late snow is predicted for tomorrow. I’ll believe it when I see it, but for now I’m happy to be taking in the sun, the moon, and the unclouded sky.
