Dawn couldn’t color the sky
Frozen from white into shades of gray
Sun painted Sandias red between blues
Jupiter jumped over the moon

Jupiter jumped over the moon is a great line. Awesome photos
The images are beautiful, Tim, and I enjoyed your poem. It s mostly cloudy grey up here tonight, a few patches of fading blue after sundown revealed a waxing gibbous moon. Some possible snow flurries ending around midnight and the promise of a very cold dawn tomorrow. How did December get here so quickly?
November went by in a flash. Thanks, Lavinia.
Great words, good pictures.
You are welcome.
Magic of colors..
Creative lines connecting your images. That moon shot is fantastic!
Thanks, Michele. Did you see Jupiter and the moon tonight?
No, I did not sit under the stars last night. My loss. Thanks for sharing.
That is a wonderful transition from gray, to color to gray again with the Moon and Jupiter + its moons [wow!]
Thanks, Marina. A little frozen sky for you.
…much needed too! Merci!
Wow!!!! Your images are exceptional, Tim!! Just wow! The “emotion” I’m feeling through your compositions is incredible. You are delving deeper into yourself and as you do you are pulling out pieces that are genius. Thank you for sharing.
I’mm not getting out as much during these short days, so I’m working with the little I have to show. Thanks for the wonderful comment, Amy Rose.
I’m in the same position, Tim. Time is getting away from me and I don’t seem to be able to get out the way I used to. So like you, I find other ways to create. How awesome!!
Loved this. Very touching actually, all that quiet beauty and your words.
Thanks, Shey. I appreciate it.
You are more than welcome. Always lovely to see your posts.
I love the ombre gray dawn and the glowing Sandias.
You’re welcome, Tim.
A lovely trio of your sky, each one perfect.
Thanks, Mary Jo.
Oh I love this so much! Words and images, beautiful.
Beautiful words and images. I love Jupiter being over the moon about its role in the sky.
Especially beautiful post
Love your words connecting to your gorgeous imagery Tim! 💞
You’re welcome Tim❣️
Stunning pics, Tim.
Jupiter jumped over the moon… I love it! Always so creative my friend…
I have to say I love when you get into your poetic mood, Tim. Wonderfully done.
Magic, Tim! A question, how did you take the moonshot?
When you shoot the moon you need to use manual settings. The moon is reflecting sunlight, therefore, you need to expose the moon like is was daytime. You have to use similar settings for bright planets (Jupiter and Mars are very bright right now), but the planets vary greatly in the necessary exposures. My exposure for the moonshot was 1/800 sec, ƒ/4 at ISO 100. I hope that helps. Thanks, Geoff.
That is great advice, Tim. Never managed to get that clarity. Will try this out. Thanks for the help!
Keep in mind I’m using my Bazooka. It’s a high-end 400mm lens. It’s super sharp.
If you’re interested, I just posted a new song. You can listen to it at https://soundcloud.com/user-334086053/sealed-in-a-kiss?si=5206fd9f6c9342d2821e71e6294dbf31&utm_source=clipboard&utm_medium=text&utm_campaign=social_sharing
Just been listening, El Cheo! I see you break into Spanish in “Dejame” Hay que senior con so buen trabajo! Chevere!
Thanks. You might enjoy “Mascherina” I mix Italian, English and Spanish in that song. It’s a parody of Macarina by Los Del Rio: https://wp.me/p1yQyy-59a
Made me laugh, right after I commented on one of your other posts about our boring skies, you lead with our typical gray dawns.
Gray happens doesn’t it? Thanks, Brian.
WoW! It’s a new exclamation point(s). Fab shots.
