A View from The Zone
Explanation: Brilliant Venus and the central Milky Way rise in the early morning hours of March 1 in this sea and skyscape.

The scene looks out from a beach at Sea Isle City, New Jersey, USA, planet Earth. Of course, Earth orbits well within the solar system’s
habitable zone, that Goldilocks region not too close and not too far from the Sun where surface temperatures can support liquid water.

Similar in size to Earth, Venus lies just beyond the inner boundary of the habitable zone. The watery reflection of light from our inhospitable sister planet is seen along a calm, cold ocean and low cloud bank.

Following hot on the heels (cold on the roots? frosty on the branches?) of my last post…
I offer you this…
Hauntingly beautiful. Delightfully spooky!

It’s hard to say what appeals to me most about this photo…
The darkness of the tree against the pale sky. The snow. The fog and mist.
It all comes together for a great photo!
Have a great winter weekend, my little geeks & nerdlings! There aren’t many of them left.

Pluviophile: Someone who loves rain; one who finds pleasure in rainy days; yours truly.
The fear of rain would be pluviophobia.
This is my word of the day!
Thanks, hugs & kisses to the incomparable Wendy McIntyre for passing this photo along to me.
You are, as always, the best!
