The moon and the sun

The moon was ready for bed on Sunday morning as we prepared to ride up to Johannesburg on our motorbike...
...and the sun was rising a few minutes later when we stopped along the road

Thanks to Klaus, Sandy, Wren, Sylvia and Tom for a beautiful meme which you publish week after week.


  1. Beautiful pictures of the moon and sun, Jo... Thanks for sharing.

  2. Great photo of the moon, but I especially like the sun through the grasses.

  3. Gorgeous photos, Jo.
    Long ago and far away, I worked day shift setting type for a daily newspaper. I lived an hour from work and my shift started at 7am. One morning I arrived at work all excited because I'd seen the moon setting and the sun rising at the same time. Those men I worked with didn't understand what all the fuss was about. I know you understand.

  4. Both beautiful captures. Such a great way to start a road trip.

  5. Wonderful shots Jo, I love the sun with her hair sweeping across her face. Just like you on a fast bike.

    Have a lovely weekend!

  6. Great shot of the moon Jo but the one of the sunrise is stunning.

    That was quite a long trip on the bike and I am pleased it did not rain.

  7. Stunning shots of the moon and sun.

  8. These are gorgeous captures, Jo! Love all your photos.

    Have a great weekend.

  9. Gorgeous captures as always, Jo! And the perfect way to begin or end a day! Love the moon, slipping off to bed as the glorious sun says hello! Have a wonderful weekend!


  10. Oh JO!! These are Beautiful!!!
    I do SkyWatch once in a while to...They quit? They no longer do Skywatch? Who is, do you know?

  11. Wow, Jo these are awesome photos. I love the moon shot and the second of the sun rising is my favorite.

  12. What kind of camera do you have to shoot such wonderful sun/moon pictures ? When I try to take a picture of the moon it looks like a hole in the black sky !

  13. Both photos are great, Jo! I especially like the waving silhouetted tall grasses against the gorgeous sunrise.
