Wonder full skies, almost certainly won't see another moon like this in my lifetime.

Wow, it didn't look nearly as big as that here, I wonder why. Fantastic picture - Hayden would have loved it to illustrate his words...you've got me humming along.

28 Sep, 2015

 

Yes, same here Karen, although, not quite as spectacular but, a wonderful sunset.

28 Sep, 2015

 

Looks wonderful Karen. I got up last night at three thirty to see the red moon. Spooky!

28 Sep, 2015

 

Superb collection of photos of a very special event. They are spectacular Karen.

28 Sep, 2015

 

Thanks for looking everyone. I love the second pic, but none of them are anything like as good as it was in reality.

28 Sep, 2015

 

breathtaking photos!

28 Sep, 2015

 

I don't believe in God, but I have to say the luner eclipse was wonderful. Fantastic photos Karen.

29 Sep, 2015

 

Amen, Karen. I love the pictures! Awesome!

29 Sep, 2015

Thanks everyone, glad you enjoyed it. I thought nk we may get similar again this evening. Its been another glorious day. :)

29 Sep, 2015

 

Fantastic views of the night sky, Karen. That last one is superb. The moon here was nowhere as big as yours ....... like Stera, I wonder why?

29 Sep, 2015

 

OH thought it might be something to do with Karen being further north and the moon therefore being lower in the sky??

29 Sep, 2015

 

The sky is totally different tonight. Pale and not at all red.

29 Sep, 2015

 

Stera, I hadn't thought of that explanation, it sounds very right.
Pale sky here too, Karen.
The most amazing sight I ever saw was a huge Harvest Moon early evening a few years back. It really was huge, brilliant orange & I've never seen so many people walking up our hill to see it.

Belief in God, belief in a single electron shared by the whole universe or belief in nothing, one cannot deny that having the eyes to see this beauty is a blessing.

I couldn't have put it better myself Loosestrife.

Beautifully said, Loosestrife.

The sky has been wonderful this week. I loved seeing the eclipse and red moon, then last night I saw a shooting star! Not seen one for about 40 years, it was very bright and beautiful x

2 Oct, 2015

 

Sadly I missed the eclipse but have appreciated all the lovely photo's shared online by others, yours are spectacular Karen....

2 Oct, 2015

 

Thank you both, it was the best I've ever seen. Absolutely mind blowingly beautiful. We stood and stared for ages. :)

2 Oct, 2015

 

Magnificent skies. They have been brilliant lately. We missed the partial eclipse also. The moon has been really big and bright too hasn't it. Great photos Karen.

5 Oct, 2015

 

Thanks Homebird :)

Beautiful!

Did see the partial eclipse, and one morning though I saw a UFO!! It was the morning star, Venus the brightest star in the sky. It really glittered!

12 Oct, 2015

 

Wow, you caught it. I looked and could not believe my eyes, and to think it was with you also...Definitely a once in a lifetime. And of course, the stars. I think as one gets older, and I am a lot older than you, we begin to appreciate the wonders of nature, whatever you want to call it by name. It is just incredible if you only can look!

Thank you Eirlys and Wells!

Posy, my earliest memories are of lying on pavements alone, gazing in awe at the clouds passing overhead; of exploring the growth in the verges and thrilling at the way a spinning top of multi colours shone white at speed. I have always been in awe of creation. My early memories are mostly connected with plants! Its something I was gifted and something that has only increased as time has passed. I suppose that's why living in a city like London, though exciting, was ultimately too difficult. There were whole days when I didn't see anything growing and as time went on I found myself seeking out nature more and more and withdrawing from the pressure to 'succeed' by running around trying to get auditions etc. At the time I saw it as my failure, but now I can see that it was actually my spirit prompting me to get back to what really matters to me. :)

So agree with you there, Karen. Despite being born in London or maybe because of it, I have to have countryside around me, can't stand being hemmed in by rooftops.

4 Nov, 2015

 

Karen, are you an actress, or singer besides a fantastic gardener. The stage was the loser if that was the case. You are a winner! I grew up in the country, and craved the city whereeventually i lived. Then I discovered the garden, and that was it, no more city ever, ever, ever. So we all start out thinking we would like this or that and most of the time do get pulled toward the thing we are supposed to be doing...

4 Nov, 2015

 

Yes, thats right Wells, I trained to be a Classical Soprano. I miss music, but only because I spend so much time gardening I forget to listen to any! Sometimes I give my 'Amazing Grace' to the birds from my bathroom! :))

5 Nov, 2015

 

I can relate to all you have said, Karen. I was born in Wembley, but lived for the holidays at my grandmother's country home. When I was 10 we moved near to Dorking and I was in seventh heaven. College in London was good, but I have lived within easy access of the country ever since. I adore our holidays in Scotland. I don't think I would want to live in a city now. An occasional visit to London is fun, but certainly reinforces my preference!

And I HAVE to be able get to the sea from time to time if only just to stand and look at it and listen to it - I can do that for hours!
