Hello to all my friends,
The sun was setting at the back of me and the moon is rising as we are having full moon tonight! this was captured at the deck of my house that looking across the valley to the far horizon of the sky!
Some of you might be interested to know that we will soon be starting our day light saving earlier than the past years, so we will move our clock one hour ahead usually start at 0200am early sunday, the day light saving will last right until the middle of march next year. The day light will be getting longer and longer that we can do a lot of things during this few months!
Sharing with you all and hope you can enjoy it

Thank you for viewing!

Hi Tony,

The setting sun and the rising moon - how glorious this picture is. The colors of the clouds above the tree is magnificent. Beautiful composition as always. We don't have daylight savings time in Arizona - never did know why not.


Hello Tony
Very intersting backlight you captured,
Perfect lighting,comopsition and POV,
Superb shot,Welldone.


Hello Tony
The clouds really create a dramatic sky, they are full of colour and I love the way the sun is lighting them up. Also, the clouds against the deep blue sky is a nice contrast and the moon is an added bonus to your composition. We don't change our clock back until the first Sunday in November. The days are getting shorter and nights longer and colder...burrrr.

Superb work, Tony!
I tried to capture the moon at sunset last night but with nowhere near your success!
I love the colours and textures here

Hi Tony,

We have also daylight savings time in Holland. The clock goes at 03.00 am 1 hour back on 28 of october. (Wintertime)A marvelous picture you presented to the members. What a clouds. the sun is glowing on them. Nice compo with the moon in the blue sky. The dark FG make this photo a bit mysterious. Regards and TFS Bob

Hi Tony. What a great view you have from your home. the detail and colour in the clouds are very good indeed. you have use the lighting so well. a nice compostion. well done TFs.

Simply super clouds...They do portend the possibility of moisture, or at least a break in the day.....Saturation is critically well done. Composition is spot on...

Salut Tony, très belles couleurs dans ces nuages, magnifique ciel bleu et très belles silhouettes,

Very nice capture of these evening clouds Tony.
Thanks for reminding me about daylight saving on Sunday.

Hi Tony

Great definition and variation in the clouds. Really good composition too.


Hello Tony,
A wonderful cloud formation, most likely stratocumulus!
The light is most eye-catching, catching the upper part of the clouds and leaving the rest in shade...
Fine use of the silhouetted trees, the moon is a fine bonus!

Hi friend Tony,
This is an outstanding shot and a fabulous perspective. The fantastic hues and colours in the stunning cloud formations, the pristine blue sky and the beatiful Moon gives a majestic view. The silhouetted FG balances the frame perfectly. Excellent POV to portray this charming scene and very nicely composed. Kudos.

Bonjour Tony,
Magnifique ciel plein de belles couleurs avec l'avant plan en silhouette.

Hi Tony,
A sunset and a moon photo in one....lucky you! Love the cloud formation and how it received these wonderful warm tones from the setting sun. The fact that you got such a clean sky above the clouds gave you a perfect view on the moon. Great work on the exposure and sharpness.

Hello Tony a fine shot the contrast and colours are really superb nice warmth in the clouds tfs rgds Necip.

Hi Tony
This is a wonderful capture of the clouds. The color is amazing. And you were able to get the moon in there as well.
Great job!! TFS

Hi Tony,
An excellent capture of this scenic beauty. The clouds look like the arrival of ETs from the Scifi "Independece Day".:D. Lovely work. Thanks a lot for sharing.

Hi Tony

Magnificent clouds catching the late sun. The blue sky and silhouetted land make nice contrasts. The moon is an added bonus



Interesting shot Tony, the early moon makes it work.
I enjoy the billowing clouds, late light, and tree line in silhouette.
Well done.

Hello Ho Tony!
Wow, that is one amazing cloud formation! The color in the clouds is beautiful and there is the big moon..very nice! TFS

that powershot S5 seems to have fantastic anti shake properties..hand held as this is at 1/100 and at the wide setting it still reeks of tripod and ultra fine grain film
excellent capture with perhaps too much darkness in the lower third
the moon is a striking addition

Hello Tony,

What a good composition! You are like an artist who has dipped his paintbrush into the yellows, browns and white and swirled them together to give this amazing effect!

Interesting notes, Tony!
Kind regards,
Bev :-)

Hello Tony
Wonderful shot
great light and colours

Hi Ho,
Amazing picture and super colours! Sky and clouds are really vivid! Very nice shot.


hi tony!
nice picture with a great feeling!
very nice to see!

hi Tony,

Sunset or sunrise sky with clouds is a great subject with spectacular results. Apart from the fine textures and colours, I like very much how you "caught" the moon in the right upper corner; it fills a space rather empty otherwise.

Cheers, Petru

Very nice capture of interesting colours of setting sun at clouds Ho. I like the dramatic look of clouds and contrast to the dark silhuette.TFS

Hello Tony. Nice captured cloud with the moon in sight. The silhouette makes excellent foreground in this low lying cloud against the blue sky. Regards. Jusni

Hi Tony.
Perfect composition and beautiful sunset.....
Excellent picture from you as usual...Thanks to share...
Kind regards,
