Watching the Sky

Below he captured the sun setting in the golden sky right before the moonrise.

  • The last pic was gorgeous! Something about the trees in the middle, must be that they look ablaze and it was fire crew that took the photos. Simply astounding, thank you for photo

  • Is that Kneeland? Great spot for sky watching.

  • The conditions were just right, however when the moon turned red I was only able to get one photo of it and yes it was Kneeland. And no Im not with the fire crew.
