SUNRISE, MOONSET

Believe it or not, these pictures were taken within 5 minutes of each other.  The sunrise swept across the sky in brilliant, fiery blaze of color while on the opposite horizon the full moon slowly slipped below the mountains. 

I don't often get to watch a moonset so this was a treat.  The night before it ruled the sky with its opal glow, surrounded by a treasure of diamond stars.  Upon the arrival of the morning sun it graciously relinquished its reign and drifted silently away with the promise to return for yet another night.

I love the morning sky.
