Today’s Photo Of The Day is “Transition” by Clayton Peoples. Location: Alabama Hills of California.

“The full moon sets in the western sky as the sun rises in the east, illuminating the high peaks of the Sierra Nevada (Mount Whitney is the most prominent peak, right),” says Peoples. “I had envisioned this shot for quite some time but was never able to get all the elements to align until this particular morning. To me, this photo captures the essential relationships between the sun and earth, and between earth and the moon. By coincidence, I took the photo a mere two days before Earth Day—a fitting tribute!”
