Insomnia strikes again

See how nature - trees, flowers, grass - grows in silence; see the stars, the moon and the sun, how they move in silence...we need silence to be able to touch souls.
Mother Teresa of Calcutta

A couple of nights ago, I woke in the middle of the night; nothing real unusual  about that. Occasionally when this happens I get photo ops that I would normally never get; and this time was one of those times.  This particular photo is also thanks to Rascal, who normally sleeps quietly through the night, but this night he had to go, bad, and was whining to go out.  There was this wonderful moon outside, just a sliver but the night was so crisp and clear even the dark side was visible.  I just had to try to capture that image, through adjusting the aperture and exposure, putting the camera on a tripod and using the delayed timer I was able to capture this photo.  Not perfect but pretty good considering I only have a bridge camera.
I wish I had the words to convey the wonderfulness of that night.
Crisp, clean, clear
Air surrounding me-
Profound silence
Blanketing me-
Only an owl
Quietly hooting-
Peace enveloping me.
Wonderful awakening

That is a great picture! I don't like insomnia one bit and always end up wanting to burst into tears but you chanced upon something beautiful so it ain't all wasted :)
