Moonrise, Sangre De Cristo Mountains, NM

Moonrise, Sangre De Cristo Mountains, NM. The kitchen window or the deck usually work fine for a shot of the moon. This month I had to stand in the middle of the driveway (poor me) in order to line up the tree and mountain with the moon.  I hope you got to see it from where ever you are. Thanks for looking. G

Crescent Moon, Taos Volcanic Plateau.

Crescent Moon, setting over the Taos Volcanic Plateau, northern New Mexico. It was very quiet out there as the moon emerged briefly in the space between the clouds. No traffic, no birds, no planes… and then it disappeared into the clouds again. Thanks for looking. G

Harvest Moon Rise, Sangre De Cristos, NM

Harvest moon rise, over the Sangre De Cristos, mountains illuminating the clouds. This is the view from our driveway in San Cristobal on the night of Friday the 13th. I had meant to post it on the day, but…! So here it is. The warm color is from a forest fire controlled burn in the foothills and the smokey haze affected the color of light in this scene. Happy harvesting and thanks for looking. G

Harvest Moon Rising, Sangre de Cristo Mountains

Harvest moon rising, Sangre de Cristo Mountains, New Mexico. A great photo tour today. Thank you Mike. When I got home this was the view of the shimmering, shining, harvest moon rise… out the kitchen window. It will be full tomorrow night. Thanks for looking. G

Moonrise, Taos Mountain, San Cristobal

Moonrise, over Taos Mountain from San Cristobal, NM yesterday evening. The moon is 99.9% full tonight but rose well after the clouds dispersed from the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, so no photo tonight. I hope you will enjoy this image. It will be a full moon at 6:29am on the morning of Thursday August, 15. Thanks for looking. G

Moonrise In A Sienna Sky

Moonrise in a sienna sky, over the Sangre de Cristos, New Mexico. Life from the deck in San Cristobal. The moon rose powerful this evening, conquered and ruled the dome of the sky. The only time I have not seen the moonrise over the foothills of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains is when it’s cloudy or I’m out of town, and… weather permitting I’ll see the moonrise in the place I am. Thanks for looking and keep on looking. G

Bright Moon Over The Sangres

Bright moon over the Sangre de Cristos, this evening. Try keeping me away from this. I did feed the dogs. Dinner can wait. Besides that, nothing else exists in this moment. Stay tuned for the solstice moon rise tomorrow. Thanks for looking. G

Prayer Flags With Crescent Moon

Prayer flags with the crescent moon this evening over Arroyo Hondo, NM. A crystal clear sky with the waxing moon. Such a beautiful, simple composition, nothing wanting or lacking. Thanks for looking. G

Crescent Moon One Percent Waxing

Crescent Moon one percent waxing over the Volcanic Plateau west of Taos, New Mexico. It took me a moment to see it, actually quite a long moment. Then, as the clouds parted, there it was shining like the day. Thanks for looking. G

Full Harvest Moon, San Cristobal, NM

Full Harvest Moon rise, over the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, from San Cristobal, NM. Cutting right through some haze for the first few moments as it rose and then boom… it was crystal clear. I liked this image because I can still see the the ridge line of the mountains giving the whole scene context. Now, time to put on a jacket and wander out to sit and bath in the moonlight, sip a little whiskey and ponder all the beauty out there. Thanks for looking. G
