SkyWatch Friday - Moon sliver

Last night I got home from school just after the sun went down.  The moon was just a sliver of while as the rest of the sky colored up beautifully.  I sat in my backyard enjoying the changing colors as it got dark and listened to the coyotes howling in the river bottoms.



Just another end to a wild day in Idaho.

We had the same beautiful colors over here on the west side of the state. We were driving to my son's Cub Scout Pack Meeting and my kids were amazed to see all the colors of the rainbow in a sunset and that sliver of a moon just made it all the more special.

Beautiful sunset color, and a nice capture of the moon. We sometimes hear the coyotes here. Makes it seem like we're living in the wild west.

I've got great colors too but surely not the wide open spaces. So beautifully captured.

Beautiful sunset colors and sliver of moon. Also nice is the vertical branches in front of the diagonal clouds.

Amanda said...

what a peaceful picture you described, except the coyotes part, they howl here too something spooky. The colors in your sky are gorgeous and I love that the moon is this fading sliver, barely visible!!! happy skywatch =)

It's a rough life Bill, and a gorgeous sunset to enjoy with the coyote music. How many layers were you wearing?

Marvin said...

After three days of overcast, our sky cleared just in time for me to see that sliver of moon last evening, but we did not have that stunning red sky to compliment it. Great SWF!

BK said...

Wonderful sunset photo, the colors are amazing. I also love your header photo, are they Grouse?

Grayquill said...

Even here in the suburbs I hear the coyotes sometimes but it is rare - your probably thinking Grayquill doesn't know the difference between a sick shepard and a coyote. I won't die on that hill.
