I sat by the edge of the precipice looking over the vast valley that I call home. The sun was just barely setting, letting a beautiful orange gleam of light scatter along the mountain side. As time passed, the blue sky darkened warning me that I should descend from the mountain soon. Packing the cameras back into the bag, I took one last glance into the distant mountains and there it was, the full moon. I would of never saw it coming, I didn’t realize the full moon was going to be out tonight. I was tempted to grab my camera, but instead I allowed myself to take in the view without a lens in the middle of it.
