February Begins: Moonrise Over The Mountains

Moonrise over La Sal Mountains, Utah.

February 2nd, the evening before Full Moon. Usually the best time of the month for moonrise landscape shots.

The weather forecast was quite favorable: mostly clear, and calm. The setting perfect: southeast Utah, south of Moab, within view of the La Sal mountain range, cloaked with winter snow only a few days old. All is well, very well.

Up it came. Of the several images I made of the scene, this is probably my favorite. Besides the peaks and the moon, the clouds floating above make for an even more interesting composition.
