Mountain Moon Rise
This was the night of the rare, Blue Moon, in July of 2015. I sat out on the side of the mountain waiting for the moon to rise and when it did, there were clouds. I took a number of shots at different settings with two different cameras and finally got this image with the moon behind a cloud. I started out to be fairly chilly at over 10,000 feet up in the mountains of eastern Utah, but for some reason it warmed up a bit. Being from the low desert, I was surprised that I had to wear my winter parka to keep warm on a July evening.
