A September moonrise

To the moon I bare my soul 
under its glowing light
the longings of my heart come alive ~ Hints Of Life

Moonrise in Chandigarh, northern India

Living in the foothills of the Himalayas is an extraordinary feeling. The undulating hills visible from the hustle and bustle of the city are the Shivaliks, a range of the outer Himalayas. The autumn moonrise and its sunsets are beautiful to watch.

I’m such a ‘look at the moon’ person, a confirmed selenophile. The picture above was taken as I was walking my baby girl to the nearby park (her coos are louder and more full hearted there). A beautiful evening just after the rains, the breeze cool, birds making their way, a game of cricket in play on the street.

Through the labyrinth I set my eyes ahead, and there it was the moon rising under the fading daylight even as the hymns from the temple started to be heard. A sign of momentary nightfall.
