About a week ago we had a super moon. I decided to go to one of the peaks in the Laguna Mountains to capture the sunset and the moonrise. I was actually a little more hopeful to get a good sunset shot since, knowing this peak, I couldn’t imagine any foreground element to provide a context for the rising moon. This turned out to be the case.
As the sun was setting, I watched the golden light and shadows play on the peak.
As the sun was slipping over the western horizon, I shifted my position and tripod onto the peak.
About a half hour after sunset, an orange moon rose through layers of haze and wisps of clouds.
