    February 20th Almost Full77 viewsI happened to run to the store and saw the moon as it rose from behind the Wasatch.

    Full Moon and Fast Clouds90 viewsThe clouds were booking it across the moon when I took this. It was hard to leave the shutter open, to catch the lit up clouds without washing out the moon, and having the clouds blur, which was in the end the effect. Still neat looking.
