solstice sun and moon

it was solstice yesterday, which is called "Sommersonnenwende" in German: "summersunturn". the start of summer. and the sky here was in tune with it: sunny and warm, with swallows curving the air.

in the afternoon, i took the time to go swimming, and the triangle of elements - water, sun and air - lead to island memories from the Canary islands, which are also called "islands of perminant spring". so that's where my photo friday image is from, taken 6 months ago:


later the moon came out, almost full, and i tried a photo, which looks like the cloud reflect the moonlight.
now i just looked: full moon will be on sunday, two days after solstice

Beautiful light rays in the first photo, and fantastic colors! Got up early today to capture the moonset but too many clouds.
