Night photography is not something I've mastered yet, so please take my word for it when I say that we are enjoying cloudless skies night and day here.

Whether it's a person, a building or an abstract shape, show us something that exists harmoniously with its surroundings. This is the brief for this week's photo challenge Graceful.
