September Skies

On Monday the sky was cloudy but the rising Harvest moon did make a brief appearance.

A change of lighting with Photoshop made this image look eerie.

This "break" in the clouds was happening next to the sunset, crepuscular rays maybe?

9/8/14 sunset

I took my camera with me to the market the next morning in case there was a good moonset photo op, which there wasn't, but I ended up taking a sunrise picture.

9/9/14 sunrise

Wednesday night from my street I was able to glimpse the glowing nearly full moon rising from behind a hill. Those little stick-like things are saguaro cacti.
