Weekly Photo Challenge – Serenity

Out in the desert in Nevada hiking along discovery all the wonders that were to be discovered in Valley of Fire State Park and there up ahead over the crest of this hill was the moon out in the afternoon.  The sun and the moon had their chance to meet and I had the chance to capture the beauty of that moment; a moment not spoiled by the encroachment of man and his noisy cars, airplanes, helicopters, mobile phones, or chatter as we were on this trail alone.

It was the most beautiful silence.

    Great shot of the moon in the day sky! That is what I love about the desert… Beautiful blue sky at day and starry, starry at night! And both are peaceful and serene!

    I’m very partial to Western landscapes.

        Try not to get overheated out there in the summer and I’m already trying to figure out when we can go back 🙂

        Only once have we been caught without adequate water for our hike and that event is NOT to be repeated!

    Teri – I really like this. The outcropping of rock and the moon really balance each other. 🙂
