Pink clouds you said?

 Certain recluse, I know not who, once said that no bonds attached him to this life, and the only thing he would regret leaving was the sky.

Monday night, she had said “Mom, let’s go and just walk by the pond”, and I had agreed. Being couped up at home for most of that day I needed the fresh air. She was holding my arm as we walked slowly, and looking at her I marveled at how fast the years transformed my Darling Daughter into this amazing young person, almost a woman. We were chatting and singing and enjoying each other’s company, the air was warm and I felt happy. 
Earlier that evening I was lucky enough to capture a truly amazing sunset and I was readying myself for some Blue Hour shots, thinking it was late enough in the evening. 

Arriving at the pond we sat on the boulder facing the water and listened in to the geese and the frogs chatting together. Surrounded by nature I was all wrapped up in the beauty of that particular moment, when I happened to look up and saw a glimpse of this marvelous looking sky. The Pink and Blue kind, which is always such a pleasure to admire. I suddenly felt an urge to dip my finger into some liquid paint to just throw some wild splashes onto a canvas and see what would happen. 

Alas not finger painting allowed on the street, but the next best thing…Being able to take photographs of nature’s awesome show. So we went running up to the hilltop just in time to be catching those breathtaking moments. 

Am I the only one wanting to try and copy this on a blank canvas?

My very first moon shot, what do you think?
