Full moon October 2015

Earlier this week we traveled to the city - Grant had business with the traffic bureau in Bloemfontein. I had captured the moon -  verging on full - the night before over our home. But the next morning it was full and I managed a couple of shots taken from a fast-moving vehicle! 

And then the moon setting to the west as the sun rose behind us in the east! 
The rising sun's rays causing the rosy glow on the setting moon
A typical scene of the Eastern Free State - the moon setting over the horizon, the sun rising behind me and the iconic windmill in the middle distance
By the time we'd glided onto the N1, we were greeted with this beautiful sunrise
Taken from a fast-moving vehicle, I was thrilled to capture these images
Awesome way to greet the day, isn't it?
