Thank you to MSoriano Photography for this stunning picture, which was taken tonight in Claycord.
Reminds me of Radar…
Great picture, but is that moon real?
Cold Moon rising.
I’d also like to think this is Radar’s doing – and he’s telling us from above that he’s doing just fine. He is taking God’s pictures now.
Very cool picture!!!
It’s composed like a Japanese woodblock print. Quite lovely.
It makes it look like an Alpine village.
Thank you, M. Soriano!
I looked at your website and you have many beautiful and well-taken pictures. You are obviously a craftsman!
Castlevania gundam, I mean, Concord style.
I also thought of Radar. It’s nice how many people has made an impression on.
Great picture — I was thinking of trying to capture it last night, alas it was only in my mind until now..
Wow! Just beautiful!
What a beautiful picture. Thank you for sharing!
Lovely picture! Thank you for sharing it with us.
Gorgeous to say the least
Thank you Mayor, for posting.
And thanks everyone for the compliments! I’ve never met Radar in person, but have interacted with him here, in Claycord. talking shop. He was indeed in my mind since reading about his passing. He will be missed.
Yes, the moon is real.
And yes, the pink glow is real, it is called the “Belt of Venus”, an atmospheric phenomenon seen at sunrise and sunset. The blue shade below it is the earth’s shadow, sometimes called the “dark segment”.
Tech specs for the interested:
300mm, f/11, 1/13 sec. ISO-100
Canon 60D on tripod
The next full moonrise will be on January 26, at 5:24 PM. It’s the perfect time to try this, since the sun will set at 5:25PM, giving off a faint light on the hills, as the moon rises. The following day will be too dark, with the moon rising an hour later, at 6:24 PM.
Looks like Radar’s handiwork to me…
Hands down, the best moon of the evening.
Thank you for sharing, M.Soriano. It’s a beautiful pic, and I am very thankful you reached out and provided it to the Mayor. Probably reminds a lot of us of Radar and the care he took in getting that “perfect shot”…….
Such a beautiful picture–a definite keeper. Reminds me of………….
Those colors are unbelievable!!! The gradiation of the dark blue sky to deep purples and the orange of the moon,
Beautiful capture! I love it when there’s just enough light left to detail the elements below, in this instance the homes. I lucked out one evening in Pacifica along the highway (no fog!). It looked like it was night above the horizon and still daytime below. Anyway, great photo.
Beautiful. Thank you for sharing.
