quote du jour ~estes – go out in the woods…

Go out in the woods, go out. If you don’t go out in the woods nothing will ever happen and your life will never begin.

The photos below were taken early this evening between sundown and twilight, as I walked the trails at the North Carolina Museum of Art park. I’m only working with an iPhone 4, so the pics don’t quite do the views justice, but I can assure you, the sky was absolutely breathtaking tonight. The moon rose before the sun had finished setting…I turned from a western sky ablaze with light to see the moon rise in a pale eastern sky that quickly darkened to a deep cobalt blue.  It was amazing to see.
