Photos taken on top of mountain on the morning of Spring Equinox on March 20, 2011

Facing Eastward to the rising Sun

Facing Westward to the setting moon (the lesser Light) and man made artifical light of the City.

I woke up early on the morning of the Spring Equinox with the hopes of seeing the full moon and taking some pictures of what was being called the "super full moon"..The moon was approximately 50,000 km closer to the earth this weekend.  The moon appeared about 14% bigger and 30% brighter than normal. The last time it was this close to the earth was back in the early 90's.  Unfortunately it was cloudy and stormy. The storm had left several inches of snow, but that didn't stop me from my annual Equinox hike to the top of a mountain. However,  I was able to witness the greater light rise in the East.. the Sun. The brillaint colors of indigo, violet, magenta, and midnight blue left me awestruck. Looking to the west at lesser lights of the city lights and a possible glimpse of the lesser light of the moon paled in comparison to the powerful colors of our Creator. We can learn important lessons and it all depends in what direction we are facing.

  1. I love it. There's the greater light, the lesser light..... and then there's man made light. Good concluding thought about which direction we are facing. We can face man's light, lesser light or greater light.
