Photo Prayer 2020-37 -- Full Moon

Who can pity themselves while sunlight still shines on the serene face of the moon above? Who can consider themselves cursed while glorious clouds still sail across that face and share with us the sun’s reflected rays? Who can say we are lost while that glow illuminates our land? Who can see the light and not be joyful? If I wake you with my singing, put your slumbers aside, come out and join me!

Lovely! We all need reminders daily that Nature and beauty goes on in spite of the foolishness of mankind.

ON FACEBOOK, DANNY HAD SAID: Isolated in my house, I still find photographic opportunities. Today's Photo Prayer features a photo taken out my office window of the full moon and clouds. When I teach photography, I keep telling my students you can never tell where a good image might be found. You don't have to travel to Yosemite Valley; there are photographic marvels over the Delaware Valley.

Andrew Wyeth would agree with you only about painting...😉

That’s exactly what EW Edward Weston said in ca. 1930.

I love this prayer. Very comforting to see a clear full moon and clouds made of water. Out here, everything has been so smoky and gloomy.
