La Lune Silencieuse

.
The title is in fancy-pants French because yesterday's was, too. VJ gets it.Tuesday's moon photo was loud and brassy. Today's is quiet.

WHAT I'M LISTENING TO RIGHT NOW:
Siegfried's Death, from the opera of the same character's name. Despair and the lasting memory of triumph all within a few minutes. Wagner was a jerk but his art is transcendent.


TOMORROW: Thursday Arch Series and another new Arch photo on Gateway.

The moon is indeed quiet, but it speaks to me. Almost looks as if it is afloat on the sea.

Cool shot! I love the mysteriousness of the clouds.

This one looks like a painting.

Nice one. Looks to me like a wind tunnel. There was some pretty sweet moon action at the top of the hill last night, but the Powershot wasn't up to job.

Whoa! Amazing. A pearl adrift in a black ocean.

I like this one. You're right, it's quiet. And very beautiful.

Bob: I can see why this photo has a fancy-pants French title. It is a wonderful photograph that I never tire viewing.

I agree about Wagner.
