Contrast & reflection…

Backlit Fir Tree…

A beautiful sunset sky from Rocky Butte in NE Portland. I nice 360 view of the skyline often affords beautiful contrasts of sun, moon, clouds, trees and distant vistas around Portland.

Not quite full….the Moon & Mars

Tonight, I had just finished snapping some shots of the moon just after sunset. I never quite do it justice, but I still try.  A young man approached me. I had seen him shooting the sunset with a tripod/camera setup. “Pssst! Hey there’s a once in a lifetime event…tonight, shortly after midnight, Mars comes close to the Moon and it’s as large. We’re coming back up here to see and photograph it. We’ll have to sneak in because the parks closed.”

I think he was serious…or maybe just pulling my leg. I didn’t know. So when I got home, I searched a bit to find out it is a falsehood and I was relieved…not wanting to drag my keister out of bed and find a secluded spot…even for a once in a lifetime Mars/Lunar shot. I settled for an almost full moon.
