Holiday Moon

"Know the true value of time;
Snatch, seize and enjoy every moment of it !"
Lord Chesterfield

This is what I saw as I left for work on Wednesday morning (about 07:30 am). This is the first "real"photo that I took with my wonderful new Nikon D80. I was totally impressed that I got such a good an image - hand held at that - in such a low light situation. The moon and the trees were so beautiful. Perfect. I stopped for a minute before I got in the car & considered how fortunate I am to be able to begin my day with this kind of tender beauty all around me. I am not sure how I managed to live in large cities for so long! Does excess concrete cause madness?! The moment also made me think about how very nice it is to S-T-O-P at times. Really S-E-E . Not rush. Not already "be" somewhere else doing "something" else - but simply be in the moment enjoying what life has to offer. What will you s-e-e- today ?

Nice photo! I agree, I don't think I could ever live in a city again. Sometimes it's just nice to walk out the door and look around peacefully.

I totally agree it's amazing what there is to see if we only take the time to stop and take a proper look. Your photo is beautiful
