Ring Around The Moon
A moon halo or rainbow is caused by the refraction of light, reflected by the moon, upon ice crystals in the upper atmosphere. I rather enjoyed seeing this soft and slightly broken glow in the high cloud, passing across the face of the moon, on Thursday last week and thought it would make a good entry for the Wex Mondays challenge.

Blue Monday: Twilight Supermoon
I want to dedicate this one to my parents, who’s Wedding Anniversary is today! Much love to you both and I hope you enjoyed watching the supermoon rise over the hills in Devon last night 🙂
I just love the deep blue tones in a twilight sky! They often call it “the magic hour” and I certainly spent a magical hour watching the moon rise as the skies darkened last night.
The landscape below became an otherworldly vista, reminiscent of the finest artworks by fantasy and science fiction visionaries.
I wished for dragons to come soaring up through the cloud banks, carried on warm thermals, delighting in the freedom of flight, bellowing their joy and lighting up the skies in bright conflagration.
You may have heard about the storm named St Jude, that swept across the South of England today. After the storm had passed I drove to Newlands Corner, part of the Surrey Hills, to photograph the views for this weeks photography challenge and watch the sun go down.
Although the storm took out the power for hundreds of thousands and brought down numerous trees, the outcome wasn’t as devastating as many had predicted.
There are now lots of jokes appearing all over social media regarding the apparent non-event. I always find jokes following natural disasters a bit distasteful.
Let’s not forget that four people died as a result of the storm! My thoughts are with their families and with those who have suffered injury and destruction of property.
Nature can be a devastating force. In the UK we are much more fortunate than those who live in some other heavily populated areas of the world.
Nature is also devastatingly beautiful!
