Dennis, Both shots are very cool. Is that the true color in the first shot. I really like the golden cast. Great detail as well. Nice shooting.

Thanks for looking and commenting, Steve.

We've got alot of humidity back in the atmosphere again and some lingering high level smoke from some brush fires the last couple of months. That plus the fact this about 20 minutes from moonset is the reason for the coloration. We have yelow moons here on rise and set pretty often.

Very nice. I like them both.


Good control of long exposure time.

Great shots. I can almost see the moon in the second shot. I wish the weather would cooperate here so I could see the moon!

Both are excellent. I really am drawn to the 2nd though.
