Moon Rising


This is the moon rising, this afternoon, above the spire of Christ Church, Castlerock.
This is a Church of Ireland - part of the Anglican communion - church, which was built in 1870.

Beyond the church is the Barmouth, where the River Bann enters the sea. Portstewart is along and around the first headland in the distance, while Portrush lies beyond the further headland.

What a glorious photo! Beautiful colors, clouds, silhouette, and the moon in exactly the right place. I also like your new header although it took me awhile to figure out why it made me feel a little off-kilter.... the cars are on the "wrong" sides! :)
