A few weeks ago I was on a trip in New Mexico. While there, we stayed in an extremely remote ranch house at the base of the Guadalupe mountain range. It just so happened that our timing revolved around a full moon period. The first day of our trip we pulled in just in time to watch the sun set to the east and the moon rise to the west. An indication that it was in fact the "true" full moon. Typically, you would want a tripod for this lowlight scene. I had no tripod, so I improvised and used a fence post. I had to leave the shutter speed open long enough to gather light to show the mountains and the surrounding. I'm satisfied with the results. I can now say that I have taken a photo of a full moon rising over a New Mexico mountain range. Pretty cool stuff. I am truly blessed!
