[Description posted in January 2012: Wanted to repost this one that I'd shared for New Year's. One last look at this sky, a special moment indeed. Almost hate to say good bye to January so soon, the promise of a New Year! This photo is in celebration of the great little restaurant Wild Fish ( www.wild-fish.com ) that recently opened....and in celebration of the beautiful nights of winter.
Twice this winter, the Crescent Moon and Venus have come close together in the evening sky. This was in late December. I set up my tripod at dusk, hoping that the cloud bank would stay clear of the Moon and Venus long enough for me to take the picture I was looking for after sunset. The conditions cooperated and I was able to create a little fairytale of a picture for the new restaurant Wild Fish that opened on Thanksgiving, and whose owners needed some photography for their website.
Good luck to Wild Fish, and to all of us as we embark on another annual cycle of endeavors, doing what we can to bring benefit to our so-called 'everyday ordinary' world which is - in truth - full of wonder.
Happy Solstice Season and New Year to all!]
