Gorgeous Moonrise, Vallecito Peak

Gorgeous moonrise over Vallecito Peak in the Sangre de Cristo range of the Rocky Mountains. The moon rose over the subdued rosy hues of the snowy peak. It climbed slowly and deliberately, creeping inch by inch until it cleared the snow-capped peak. Finally it appeared to linger for a moment, and glimmered like a giant pearl, as it kissed the crest adieu. A beautiful end to a gorgeous day in New Mexico. Thanks for looking. G

  1. Beautiful photo Geraint! Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family! My uncle ‘in law’ lives off Juan Martinez road and this looks like the view from his front yard.
