    Pale moon shines ever brighter as the last bird flies home to it's nest,
    Nostrils tickled by tentative and hopeful wisps of pungent smoke.
    Chilling swiftly; a time to settle down to eat, to drink, to sleep and rest,
    To watch the embers light and burn as smouldering wood is poked.

      I like this shot, indeed I do
      A shimmering moon in a sea of blue.
      A bird in the tree its wings all a flutter
      Wisps of smoke hit the night with a stutter.
      It all adds up to a six out of six
      Well done to you Athena's Pix.

      Thanks Pete! This was from a series I took and mentioned they weren't very good, but I had edited in jpg instead of RAW and so when I amended that, I had a lot more luck!
      Yes that was in your back garden, I'm trying to scare you lol!!!:-)))
