Oh, my! What a sky! More morning skyscapes

The moon's gift to an early morning rower

All week, while on my early morning row, I've watched the waning moon grow smaller and smaller until yesterday morning, July 26th (new moon) when it was completely gone.

While every morning I was treated to one spectacular skyscape after another, my favorite vista took place on Friday, July 25th when I was out early enough to see the moon's last hurrah - a slim sliver of brightness (pictured above) shine down from the eastern sky.

Below are my morning captures each taken slightly before or just after 6 a.m. Which one do you like best?

I never know what I'm going to find when I step outside in the early morning.  Sometimes the sky practically explodes with beauty, like it did this morning.

A bit blurry - I must have gotten up too early with eyes not yet ready to focus.
