Setting sun




First facing west towards the setting sun,

then turning around to face the east,

I discovered a hawk in a tree and the rising moon.



Check out breathtaking skies from around the world at Sky Watch Friday.

Great photo's the hawk is an extra special bonus. You are way ahead of us for Fall. It looks like the trees have lost their leaves.

I love the softness of the first one. It is beautiful and dramatic in its simplicity!
The hawk and moon in one shot - awesome catch.
