52photos: week 3


The prompt for week 3 of 52Photos is evening. I mentioned last week, I’ve learned that the photo presents itself to me, which is what happened again this week.

I was making dinner Sunday evening, a new-to-me recipe from Bobby Flay for vegetable meatloaf. By the way, it’s a keeper. When walking by my backdoor, I spotted the moon just showing its face. The view, framed by the trees, stopped me in my tracks.


When I opened the door to get an unobstructed view, there was a stillness in the air. When combined with the moon’s glow and trees’ shadows, a feeling of serenity came over me. I wasn’t able to capture that feeling in the photograph, but I captured the memory, which is almost as good.

Stunning photo! My sister would love to see this - she is such a lunar junkie!
