Half Moon and Sunrises

The photo challenge this week is Half-Light. At sunrise this morning, the moon appeared to be Half too!

The sun does not abandon the moon to darkness.

Same time, same sunrise, same moon (that tiny white dot near the top right of the photo.

The sky is that beautiful old parchment in which the sun and the moon keep their diary.

sunrise clouds Arizona

In Alberta, these clouds would probably mean rain. Here in Arizona, at this time of the year, dark clouds are just dark clouds.

The latest authority among men of science says that little is known of the causes which balance the clouds in the air. They are formed of water, and water, however minutely divided or blown into bubbles, is always heavier than the air. And yet these flying fountains of all the rivers of earth, these armed and thundering legions of the storm, that beat down the forests with hail and bury the mountains in snow, and flood the plains with water, go floating over us at vast heights with all their mighty magazines when all our philosophy would require them to sink to the earth.
– Daniel March, “The Balancings of the Clouds,” Our Father’s House, or the Unwritten Word, 1869 –

Without clouds, sunrises aren’t nearly so dramatic!

There are no rules of architecture for a castle in the clouds.
– G.K. Chesterton –

What common phrases do you think of when you hear the word ‘Half’?

    1. I wish you would get your ‘two places at once’ replicator built! Just imagine what you could do if there were two of you!


  1. Thanks for the visit and follow over at CTB. I have been on holiday (still am) so slow to respond and post as of late. Even at home though I haven’t been blogging as much as I once was since Twitter and texting are so quick and always at my finger tips. Blogging is a writing process for me where I write, edit and rewrite to get it just perfect. Other things have been able to distract me and since not living an expat life things are more mundane and not as inspiring to write about.


    1. I know what you mean about coming home after an expat life. That is why it was so much fun to get a macro lens and start taking close up pictures of things in my backyard!
