It’s been a busy week, so I’m making a short blog post of an epic wolf moon rising in color and black and white, over the Sangre de Cristo section of the Rocky Mountains in southern Colorado. The moon was huge when it rose behind the snow-capped peaks. I was on a photo tour with my client at the time. I think we positioned ourselves just right. I had a good idea where the moon would rise drawing on my experience from my many trips throughout the area. That said, I used “The Photographer’s Ephemeris” to confirm the location. It’s a wonderful app. Click on the images to enlarge.
Of course, I can’t drive past this spot without stopping to take a photo, if it’s remotely nice. The forecast calls for snow on the peaks again this evening. I’m looking forward to it. We need it!
A minimalist composition of a bench overlooking the boat dock at Abiquiu Lake. We were photographing the stark reflection of Cerro Pedernal in a glassy lake. I always remember to look in the opposite direction.
As always, thank you for looking, for all the comments and compliments. Have a good week. G

Thank you so much, Kristine. G
The bench shot is so classic. I’m jealous of the Abiquiu Lake trip, I have only visited via ‘the photographer’s ephemeris’, trying to line up a crescent moon with Pedernal from there.
Next time you are here we’ll go out there. I know the perfect spot. Thank you, Larry. G
Magic Geraint. Thank you.
Thank you so much, Patsy. I appreciate the compliments. G
Geraint, the bench and lake photo is nice, but the Pueblo Peak shot is iconic NM. Love it.
Thank you, Bob, I really appreciate it. G
Great work, Geraint!! Hope you get the snow!
It’s snowing lightly here right now. The mountains should have a good covering when the sky clears. Thank you, Peter. G
Can’t decide between color and b/w on the moonrise. Both have outstanding qualities.
I have two guidelines I follow:
1. You don’t know if you don’t go.
2. Always look behind you.
I like your guidelines. Of course, I look all around me in many directions. Sometimes my head spins. Thank you, Gary. G
The b&w Wolf Moon is spectacular, so dramatic! Great to this post and remember the beautiful day you guided me around Abiquiu, etc. I got a number of great images thanks to your guidance. I must send some to you.
Thank you, Chris. I appreciate your compliments. It’s good to hear from you and I look forward to seeing some of your photos. Bes wishes. G
Hi Great to see your photo’s saw the wolf moon from this side of the pond and remember how the moon connected you to your mum or vice versa. The same moon seen from the other side of the world Blessings Alison.
Thank you, Alison. I appreciate your comments and compliments. I always think of my mom when I see the moon too. Thank you. G
