Crescent Moon Rise over the Sangre de Cristo foothills, San Cristobal, New Mexico. I got up early to see the thinest sliver (1%) of a waning moon rise over the hills behind the house. It was still dark when I made this image and as the sun rose the crescent blended in to the light of day. It will return tomorrow as a “new moon”. I think I’ll sleep in. Thanks for looking. G
Belfry, Raven, Full Moon, Garcia, Colorado. The almost full moon, a belfry cross and a raven tonight in Garcia, Colorado. We made an evening drive to watch the moon rise over the Sangre de Cristo mountains in southern Colorado. It turned out to be a beautiful evening with crisp winter light on this scene. I like to think the raven enjoyed the view too, but I doubt it. He sat, perched there, faffing the whole time.
Rising over the Sangre de Cristo foothills this evening the moon revealed itself as I watched it from the kitchen window. I picked up my camera and wandered outside on to the deck and set up. I could hear the buzz of a small engine aircraft somewhere off in the distance. I trained my lens on the moon … the sight of which made me gasp … then the ultralight trike ascended the ridge revealing itself. I can imagine the view the pilot had of the moon rising this evening. Keep an eye out for the “supermoon” on the evening of November 14, 2016
