Some Beauty For A Change

With all the ugliness in the world I thought I would share this incredible photo of a North Pole Sunset. The sun is perched below a huge sliver of a moon, which is at its closest point. Wish I could say it was one of mine but, alas, 'tis not.

Have a beautiful weekend.

The beauty of nature at her best. Lovely photo. My husband has flown over the North Pole, several times, but not me. Yet.

great shot indeed incog!!! we had a flowering bush in our yard finally open the other day to the most beautiful shade of red. i thought to myself man could never recreate this particular color of "creation" as much as he may try. this picture is un-recreatable as well. we need to marvel in the beauty and glory of created "life" more often!!!

Glad you all enjoyed as much as I did...

Karen, how cool is that! Hope you get to do it someday! So many places I'd love to go.

Z... it was a quickie.. :-)

And, very true... peej, it is often urecreatable... though digital photography allows us to enjoy some of God's wondrous creations.

Gotta stop and smell the roses (or look at the sunset) occasionally!!

Pat, I hate to put a downer on things for you, but this is man's creation.

That moon looks at least 100 times bigger than the sun. No matter how close the moon is at the north pole, it will never look that big. I think I can see Eliot about to fly by with ET on the front of his bike.

Anyway, it is a nice picture, whoever made it.

FRASYPOO: Yay!!

PAN: Actually we should all do it more often!

TROIKA: PArty pooper. Actually. it is larger because it is closer to the earth at the pole.

Troika said...

Sorry incog...

It can only be a few thousand miles closer than anywhere else on earth, at most.
