Lovely shot, Linda. Thank you much for this sharing.
You might like to view these images of “our” Moon.
Far Side of Moon:- This is a view of our Moon we never see – it is the far (rear) side and always in the dark. Notice how heavily cratered it is compared to the side of the Moon we always see:-

A calming, restful and soothing photo, Linda. It finds my pleasure easily.
You may be interested in the following inasmuch that 2018 sees a remarkable event – two, yes, two Blue Moons. They are set to occur 31 January and 31 March.
Here is what I posted onto the CAS Forum page back on 24 October:-
“2018 sees two Blue Moons occurring – 31 January and 31 March. The last time two such Moons occurred was in 1999.

I don’t usually comment on my own posts – but the bird flying toward the sun is ‘Nails’ the woodpigeon. Nails was saved from the claws of a sparrowhawk a little over 3 months beforehand, where it had been in the nest in that tree in the foreground.
So! 23rd August has arrived marking the official start of the Autumn season. The Autumn Equinox.
This photo quickly takes my liking. I love misty or foggy shots that give the sense of the ethereal is alluring. It has the ability to make ugly and ghastly scenes quite attractive.
… 23rd September, Laurence…
Good atmosphere, Linda.
thanks chaps – I didn’t think CAS would go for my ‘ground clouds’
They may be born in the gutter, but they are reaching for the stars :-)
Thanks, Linda, for the reply.
When I used to do photography, that is, till my eyesight packed up something rotten, I used to hunt for scenes like this. I love mist / fog that give wonderful perspectives of light, texture, colour etc not to mention, atmosphere.
Keep up the good work!
Best wishes and kind regards.
Lovely shot, Linda, well captured! I specially like the good and imaginative use you made of the wooden storm pillars – at first I thought they were huge cliffs.
I remember that one. Great shot Linda.
