I took this photo yesterday evening, Midsummer’s Eve. This photo hasn’t been edited other than cropping to fit this blog space. One can almost see this as a celestial bonfire. The sun is almost fully hidden behind the clouds as it approaches the horizon that separates day from night. The sun was setting in the west-north-west quadrant of the sky.
I am adding a second photo which is also unedited other than being cropped for this blog, a photo taken just a few minutes after the photo above.
This scene was found in the east-south-east quadrant of the sky. The moon is almost full. The cloud is burnished by the glow of the setting sun. This moon will reign over the night sky with the setting of the sun. This is as it should be . . .
“Let there be lights in the firmament of heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years. (Genesis 1:14)
“And God made two great lights; the greater the light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also. (Genesis 1:16)
And so, I have found the photos that will serve to introduce the Sol / Luna theme of my SoFoBoMo project.
