“Snow Moon”
Photo of the Week #41, selected in February, 2020

It’s unusual to witness a moon rising from a mountain gap. It happens even less often during winter and snow is covering the mountains, and it’s more uncommon still to see it in daylight without the usual winter cloud cover. I was remarkably fortunate to capture this shot of the moon rising between Mosquito Peak and Mt. Arkansas in the Arapaho National Forest in Colorado’s Rocky Mountains.

This photo was taken just north of Leadville, Colorado, the highest (by elevation) incorporated city in the country (10,152 feet), the gap viewed from SR 91.
