The full moon rising last Saturday over the Sangre de Cristo Mountains of southern Colorado. Commonly known as the “Worm Moon” it’s also known by these names in other cultures. Crow Moon, Sap Moon, Moon of Winds, Fish Moon. Here’s a link to the names of full moons in many other cultures. I’m rather partial to “Crow moon”. The crows in our field get busy at this time of year and show up every morning before sunrise. This is a photo of a crow with the full moon back in early December. Despite the names bestowed on a full moon, it’s a most wondrous site to behold rising over fresh snow-covered peaks of the “Sangres”. This was shot and cropped from a very large panoramic image on a photo tour/workshop. Join me in this area for a trip to see sights like this.
Here’s the panorama of the whole scene. If you have room for a large print, the detail in both is amazing. Prints will be available soon.
As always, thank you for looking. G

Indeed, I have a place for the panorama, please put me down for a print.
You will be the first to know, my friend. Thank you, Larry. G
The mountains look more like the “Blood of Santa Claus” in those pics! Not Spring quite yet then.
Sun went behind a cloud on the horizon so it muted all the colors this time. Hence the black and white. But we were ready for the Sangre color. Thanks, Jay. G
These images are further proof that you were planted in New Mexico for a purpose.
Beautiful, my friend. Hope to see you this Summer. M
That’s a really nice compliment, Mark. I really appreciate it. See you this summer. G
