Skywatch Friday: Nighty Night Blues

IMG 2678

Here's my lovely little swamp settling in for the night. The geese were in bed. The muskrat was still. The blackbirds and robins were quiet. No other animals presented themselves, and all was peaceful. It was nice.

  1. This is a striking contrast with the brilliant light shining in the darkness. Beautiful!

    So...you live near a swamp? We live beside a small lake (a reservoir).

  2. Like Pat, I love the contrast of the light shining out of the darkness. The light I think we all hope to see in our dark moments. Have a lovely weekend, Sandy!
