Once-in-a-Blue-Moon !!!

.....captured behind the window grill - a serene midnight blue Moon surrounded by an anxious retinue of loyal clouds!

Watch the 'clumps of cotton' striving to shield their unruffled leader!

So who calls the shots here? the 'leader' or the 'followers' ??

Take out the Moon and there wouldn't be any light to guide the mercenary clouds....But what if you just vapourize the Clouds like a "Messiah"? hmm..then how would the solitary Moon boss around? and most crucially - sans Clouds, i wouldn't have photographed these snaps in the first place!!!

the eve of the Full Moon....basking in the reflected glory of that hide-n-seek veteran -the Sun !!!

well.. the first was the best...

i guess its tuff to capture a far flung moon with a simple camera..
did u try touching up the foto with picassa... i guess the colors (around moon) in the last foto may come out better..

there's always this poetic flow in your writings..

your choice of words sometimes creates aliterations.. making the words seem softer in my head my when i read them..

cool stuff..
