I hadn’t planned on returning to this location yet again on this trip – but couldn’t think of a better place to photograph the moon then this lunar looking landscape.

This was actually Wednesday night, the night before the actual full moon.  The night or two before it is full is the best time to photograph the moon because you can capture it while there is still enough light from the setting sun to light up the landscape.  On the actual night of the full moon, it usually appears after it is too dark.

  1. Opaque contrasts, deep and surrealistically real.
    We appreciated so much analyzing your pics

    @ Tim Thank you very much! The area does invite investigation – spent a good part of the day yesterday hiking the canyons and washes down below. 🙂

    Dr. Lin Wang Thank you for your comment!
