Thimble Peak Twilight Cloudscape

Thimble Peak Twilight Cloudscape

Tucson, AZ

While waiting for the Honey Moon to rise, a small grouping of clouds
made a brief appearance over Thimble Peak and Bear Canyon. The pink glow
is from the Belt of Venus. What is that? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Belt_of_Venus

This is a stitch of three vertical shots (best I could do with the 300 mm which was on for the moonrise).

Below, a shot of the Honey Moon rising behind the Rincon Mountains east of Tucson
and, below that, an animation of most of that moonrise over the mountain ridges:

Nice stitch job, Sam. I would never have known. I like the subtle pastels of the sky and clouds. V

This is beautiful. The Thimble is my favorite mountain in the Tucson area. "V". The rising moon is great.

Nice contrast between the mauve aether with floating dusky blue clouds and the massive solidity of the Peak. V

A lovely capture, the pastels in the sky are most appealing. V.
