Description

In late September over the Elk Mountains the full moon rises at dusk. The blue band at the horizon is caused by the shadow of the Earth on the atmosphere. The pink band immediately above it is known as the "anti-twilight arch" or the "Belt of Venus". Painterly clouds and autumn gold aspen groves provided the finishing touches to a surreal scene I will never forget. Seven vertical frames were stitched together to produce this panoramic image.
