Photo Of The Day – Moon And The Rockies

 Title: Moon And The Rockies

Location: Canmore, Alberta, Canada, North America (51°4’55” N  115°19’20” W)

Description: Because the soaring flanks of the Canadian Rockies jut so abruptly into the sky from valleys below, catching the moon ‘setting’ requires advanced planning. This shot was taken about two hours before the astronomical moonset time and was captured by chance while killing time in Alberta.
