Sky Watch Friday

An unbelievable shot of the moon just at daybreak in Albuguerque, N.Mex. last week. Just at the right time, a beautiful hot air balloon passed by on its way to Sky Watch Friday.

What a fantastic shot! It must have been something to be those folks up in that balloon with the moon right there.
Nice perspective.
I also enjoyed all the other balloons I saw as I scrolled down.

Thanks for your visit.

Usually the moon looks disappointingly small in pictures, but not this time! Nice and big!

"When the moon hits your eye, like a big pizza pie, that's amore!!!"

Now that's an old song!

What a beautiful picture that you were able to preserve! It seems like whenever I see a "Kodak moment" - my camera is never close - I think I need to learn to keep it with me at all times - you just never know when the right opportunity will arise to get that great shot. :)

Thanks for stopping by and leaving such a sweet comment the other day. It is very nice to meet you and I look forward to reading more of your interesting blog.

(Thank you sweet friend! for stopping by and for your sweet comment! Ah! like I have said, with working full time now and not being able to blog or blog read as much as I would like, it is such a blessing to find your comment! Yay! (I try to keep the weekends for spending quality time with my hubby).

Our son is doing better! Hope that you are doing well :o)
