"Cradling The Palouse Full Moon"

For years, a friend had been telling me about a field road near his house with a great view of the Palouse hills, southeast of the town of Palouse, Washington.

Finally, one September when there was going to be a full moon rising just around sunset, I made my way to the hill at the top of that road.

The evening was fairly clear, which would be good for viewing the moon, but I wasn't sure the atmosphere color would be interesting enough. As the light faded, the pale pink sunset began to take on more deep color, as sunsets often do in those moments just before dark. The deep blues of the oncoming darkness blended with the pink, creating a few moments of this gorgeous purple hue.

I wasn't exactly sure where the moon was going to rise in relation to me, and I was a little surprised when I turned around to see this giant golden globe starting to rise above the peaks to the east. A few seconds more and I was able to take this shot of the harvest moon rising over the Clearwater Mountains. Yay for friends with good photo opportunity advice!
