Raven flight with Three Peaks, also known as Tres Orejas, and the sunset. I was waiting for the crescent moon when a couple of ravens flew by. I got the second one nicely placed. Thanks for looking. G

Three Peaks, Jemez Mountains, Crescent Moon, Sunset

Three Peaks, the Jemez Mountains, a Crescent Moon, in a Sunset. I stepped outside for an hour to watch the moon set across the plateau over Three Peaks (Tres Orejas), and the Jemez Mountains a supervolcano. The moon and sky were bathed in the golden afterglow from the sunset. Thanks for looking. G

Crescent Moon, Venus, Sunset Sky

Crescent Moon, Venus, sunset sky across the volcanic plateau this evening. I took a drive out south to sit and watch the Moon and Venus set. I did a about an hour sitting and watching from different locations, and of course, a few minutes photographing. Thanks for looking. G

Three Peaks Sunset Crescent Moon

Three Peaks Sunset Crescent Moon. Tonight I drove to the turnout to watch the crescent moon set. The orange layer is the fire smoke pollution happening in the area. Above that, the sky is pretty crystal clear and the crescent moon stands out in all it’s glory along with earthshine and a planet. I’m at a loss as to which planet. Any ideas? At this time of year, with predominantly clear skies overhead, living in the high desert is a magical earthly experience. Thanks for looking. G

Three Peaks, Crescent Moon Sunset

Three Peaks, crescent moon sunset, Taos, New Mexico. The simplicity is so beautiful. The crescent moon suspended there over the high desert plateau, punctuates the twilight as if to say “There another day passes! How was it?” Thanks for looking. G

When the full “Super Moon” was rising last week over the Sangre de Cristos, this scene was at my back. Always remembering to look behind me it felt like I’d gotten a bonus.
