Weekly Photo Challenge: Fleeting

In just moments, the day turns into night. The bright orange and red sun setting behind the mist, leaving the sky to the moon sliver. The waters cool and still with the surrounding life resting from the day.

  1. This is an amazing photo! The sunset and waning moon in one scene – clearly defined. Aren’t you glad we can capture moments that are “fleeting.”
