Prelude To A Howling



"The sun is a great heart whose tremors run through our smallest veins. The moon is a great nerve center from which we quiver forever."
Unknown by me

Just minutes before the Full Wolf Moon rose, I was taking pictures of this setting sun. And though I had driven here to take pictures of the rising moon, this sinking sun astounded me. To me, it wasn't the extra to tag on, it was the star of the show.



“They who dwell in the ends of the earth stand in awe of Your signs; You make the dawn and the sunset shout for joy.”
Psalm 65:8

All I can say is absolutely gorgeous. I especially like the way you framed the sunset with the tree branches. You got quite a sky show that night.
