This week is the first full moon since I received my 70-300mm lens for Christmas, so it was only natural that I was on the lookout for a great shot of the moon. When I learned the moon would be rising from behind the Wasatch Mountains last night at the same time the sun would be setting behind the Oquirrh Mountains, I hoped to be able to capture that event.
I got lucky on my drive home from work last night. The trick was getting to the right position before the moon started making its way out from behind the snow-covered peaks.

Tomorrow is the official mark of the full moon, but this was close enough, especially considering the timing of the moonrise and sunset. I love living in Utah and being privileged to see the majestic mountains.
