Cherish is my favorite word, and I cherish the ability of turning the routine into a beautiful moment.
Nature creates in me, a spiritual and meditative time to bring peace, harmony and balance, into an otherwise ordinary day~

Crescent Moon and Pastel Sky~

Be sure to check out more 'Skywatch Friday' posts from around the world at:

These colder months when the trees are stark and empty, it seems the sky is even more expansive than it is when the trees are clothed in the spring, summer and autumn's finery. It is when one is able to view a sky filled with colour and hear the stillness of a cold day, that one appreciates even more what each new day's sky presents us with in surprises and view them every one as a special gift. The gentle pastels and the crescent moon in these images was so soothing to the soul~


  1. Lovely captures, Mary!! Love the colors and your composition is superb with the bare trees silhouetted against the colorful skies! Hope you have a wonderful weekend!


  2. Purples, blues, reds and more. Quite the festive atmosphere.

  3. Mary, simply lovely photos. Those clouds of peach warm the sky, an added dimension that makes it quite stunning.

    We haven't seen the moon much, but did have a peak yesterday morning, then gone, but again tonight. It always makes me smile.

  4. Beautiful skies Mary.
    Have a great weekend.

  5. cool shots! the splashes of orange is beautiful.

  6. Lovely shots Mary. Moon and trees compliment each other so well.
