Crescent Moon Rise San Cristobal

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

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.

Moon Rise and an Ultralight, San Cristobal, NM

ultralight and moon rise san cristobal new mexico

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
