The Sun and The Moon

We've experienced some spectacular sunrises and sunsets while staying in Florida.  One afternoon while standing on the balcony I noticed a day moon just waiting to be captured.  And when the moon is just right, it lights up the inlet our condo faces.
I have to give our daughter credit for the moonlight photo, she's much more camera savvy than me for night shots.
The photo on the left is also from our balcony and the sunrise I photographed this morning.  The sunset on the right is taken from a restaurant across the road.  They celebrate the sunset each day overlooking the gulf with the ringing of a large bell and a free round of fruity shooters to all enjoying the view.  
I'm linking with Mosaic Monday.

  1. I would need to nap in the afternoon to stay awake long enough to get both sunrise and sunset photos. Fantastic shots Judith.

  18. Hi Judith,

    These pictures must be from the Florida Keys. I've never been, but I've heard that the sunsets there are beautiful and are treated as a very big deal. :) I love the photo of the moon lighting the water of the inlet -- gorgeous!!

    Thanks for sharing these with us -- they look so cheery right now. I've lost a little bit of that enthusiasm about the snow that I had last week. :-D Thanks so much for your visit; I hope you have a wonderful day!

    Hugs,

    Denise at Forest Manor
