What a difference a day makes!

Time and tide wait for no man…or woman.

Last Sunday night the crescent moon and Venus were in dramatic sync.

I was trying to be in that beautiful time, so I didn’t fire up my computer to learn how to use the timer setting on my new camera so I could take a picture without camera shake. “No problem,” I naively thought; I would look up the directions and have a second go at a really clear shot on Monday.

The shot is pretty clear, you can see the star and, if you look closely, a small trail of starlight on the water…but the alignment was gone. The moon and star march to different drummers. Time had moved on.
