I love that graduated blue sky. Something so peaceful about it.

Your shot reminds me of the artwork from this album:

Hi! I'm happy I stumbled across your blog. I'm enjoying your work. This is a fantastic shot of earth and sky, the sort that brings a sense of wonder and possibility.

leeroy, it was quiet and peaceful. Just me, the breeze and the night sky.

rob, you've got some impressive images at neverhappen. I especially like the moonrise over the city. kep it up!

jem, yes, i did get your invitation, thank you! I signed up at weekly shot, but so far, haven't joined in the competition there.

kathryn, glad you came by, and thanks for noticing that I try to depict a sense of wonder in my shots!

Marion, for some reason, the sky in Arizona seems bluer than where I live in the midwestern U.S. The early evenings there are incredible.
