Sunset, moonrise over the West Coast of South Africa

Writing an article on our recent trip to the Flowers of Namaqualand, I found this beautiful image in my folder. I took the photo from a fast-moving vehicle, hence the slight blur. The sunset over the Cedarberg Mountains on the West Coast of South Africa was beautiful

Shortly afterwards I captured the moon almost fully risen in the same sky

  1. I like the slight blur to the sunset. Nice moving shot.

  2. Still very good ! A moon is not easy to catch !

  3. Great shots!! Have a great weekend!

  4. Thanks for sharing today - nice shots. That's a part of the world I'd like to see once I win my million $$$'s.

  5. Fabulous, Jo.
    In the late 70s, I was driving to work one morning and saw the moon going down as the sun was coming up. I've never forgotten it.

  7. I always enjoy your pics! And thank you for taking the time to encourage me despite the busyness. God bless you sister and protect you!

  8. Beautiful!! If only I had a better camera, I could capture the moon. But I mustn't think that way.
