Nature turned on a absolutely glorious morning – albeit a freezing one.
There was a huge moonset in one direction and a delightful sunrise simultaneously in the opposite direction.
Unfortunately, the only camera Kangaeroo was carrying was on a smartphone.
This rarely takes decent pics at the best of times, let alone trying to get a lunar shot, which is challenging at the best of times with the most sophisticated equipment.
Then, blessed with a delightfully colorful sunrise and otherworldly cloud pattern on the return journey, positioning and timing rendered photographic evidence impossible.
Kangaeroo was not in a good spot to capture a good spot and needed to make it home for a meeting.
So, while waxing lyrically about the waning moon and waxing sun, Kangaeroo lacks pretty much a skerrick of evidence to back the claims.
You’re just gonna have to take his word for it, punters.
Yesterday’s moon was also glorious, but the timing today meant riding a bicycle in a westerly direction for the first half of the ride so it drawing closer to the setting moon.
And it was resplendent as it slowly descended below the ridge line created by the Okuchichibu mountains.
Nonetheless, the smartphone did the best it could.
The camera captured the best shots it could, but couldn’t do justice to the beauty of the day.
Win some, lose some, I guess/
