Quoting swreader:
I thought this moon was a tad short--but you gave us a great shot of the Hunter's Moon. Well-deserved AC. Will be looking forward to seeing what you get tonight. I particularly admire the framing--with the faint silhouette of the trees and mountains? I know Taos (sort of) but this looks more like hills than some of the real mountains around there.


This is a very high mountain to the East. Over 10,000 ft I'm quite sure, but you only see the first lower layer of it cause I am so close to the foot of the mountain, about 1 mile. You have to be further West to be able to see the higher part beyond here.

Also I shoot high for my Moon shots to get away from the big Power Lines & buildings etc.

Don't expect much from my Full Moon, as I like to get these moon shots while there is still some daylight. This was darker than I like it to be. We never see a full moon rising in daylight here. It is always about an hour after dark when it clears the mountain for us, being so close.

I've sometimes gone out West 5 to 10 miles to get away from the mountain to get a full moon shot before total dark. So many times it happens to be cloudy also, as is shaping up with clouds this afternoon.
Thanks for your viewing & commenting.

Thank you very much Heidrun for your nice comment. Tomorrow's full moon, will come up an hour or so after dark. I like the photos the night before the full moon instead.
Maybe I might go out 5 miles west of here, and the moon comes up over the horizon almost 1 hour sooner. I'm too close to a high mountain to the East. That's why I never see a full moon rising in daylight here.
