Moontree

When I was taking Socks for a walk on Sunday in the Red Rock Canyon open space (on the edge of Colorado Springs), this juxtaposition of a lone tree on top of the rocks, and the moon in that lovely blue sky, caught my attention.

  2. I saw that exact moon wedged between branches on a beech tree but the photos were not clear, too much light in the background to see the moon clearly. A wonderful, wonderful photo!
