Bright Signs

I love the idea that the moon is trying to tell us where the sun is hiding

In this photograph, which I took a few days ago, the moon is chasing a recently set sun and has begun its own journey down towards the western horizon. You can see the sun’s bright light reflecting vividly off the right-hand, western side of the moon. The light gets brighter towards the edge, until it reaches a burning white at the edge itself.

It is almost as though the moon is trying to say, ‘You’re getting warmer!’
