Full Moon Rising

We escaped to Montana for a couple of days yesterday.  The drive along the Going-To-The-Sun road that bisects Glacier National Park was beautiful with great views through the mountains in the evening light.  When we pulled into Columbia Falls, we noticed a glow along the mountain ridge on the west side of the park.  The moon was rising fast and we didn’t have to wait very long to watch it clear the mountains.  It had a very different feel from the last moonrise I watched in the Khutzeymateen and was every bit as beautiful.  A great start to our getaway in another great part of the world.

  4. Superb! Is this for real? And the same moon that shine here in the Netherlands, or another super moon 😉

    • Yep – this is how it looked. I cropped in a bit, 700mm in the field wasn’t quite enough reach. No photoshopping the moon behind the trees though. It wasn’t a super moon as far as I know, just a big, full moon.

    Great image. I love the line of trees silhouetted against the bottom of the moon – makes for a much more interesting photo (than a full moon in the sky).
