Late Autumn Sunsets, And The Moon

"Tell me the story... about how the sun loved the moon so much that she died every night... just to let him breathe... ."

~Hanako Ishii

This is the last sunset photo I plan to take of autumn 2016, and what a stunning sunset it was! The view from Grizzly Peak, in the Berkeley hills, is always breathtaking, but in autumn and winter it is especially gorgeous! I am hoping I will be able to get back up to the peak before the end of the year... yikes... less than a couple weeks from now, and perhaps do some more photos, but I am not sure it will be possible! Some along the coast would be great as well, we will just have to see. Time, weather, and Fibromyalgia permitting, I will be in all my favorite haunts, snapping photos! I know it does my soul so much good to get out with the camera. I step out of a reality filled to the brim with fear and doubt, and step into a reality of endless hope and beauty! 

And look at the amazing moon
 that rose just a little later in the evening!

Blond moon, we stand and marvel
Sleeping our noons away"

Basho Matsuo
Japanese Haiku

"The autumn leaves blew over the moonlit pavement in such a way as to make the girl who was moving there seem fixed to a sliding walk, letting the motion of the wind and the leaves carry her forward. The trees overhead made a great sound of letting down their dry rain."

~Ray Bradbury
