I’ve was sprinting back and forth across our yard the past few nights… pointing my camera towards the glorious sunsets in the West and then racing to the back pasture to capture the astonishing moon rise in the East. It has been a fun couple of evenings and I am having a hard time deciding which images to post. I liked this one in particular because the grass blade feels like it helps anchor the moon at the earths horizon. When the moon first appears it is blood red… (I haven’t processed those pictures yet!) and it is ENORMOUS!! That is one of my favorite moments though, when it seems like heaven and earth are so close.
Photographed in southeastern South Dakota

    Beautiful capture. The blade of grass does anchor the moon in the shot and adds so much more interest. Looks like all the exercise running back and forth really paid off! :)
