    At 5AM this morning, the moon was just setting on the mountains across the bay from us in Homer.

    No, it's a typical spring morning. 29F now, and it will be in the 40's to low 50's by afternoon.

    I moved to the Homer area because of the views!

    The color of the moon is what attracted me to take the photos. Yesterday it was setting just as I got out of the shower, and I didn't have time to photograph it. Today, I was pleased to see the same color in the moon when I got up, so I quickly shot a few photos of it.
     
  10. 5 am. Steve you are kinda slacking off.............

    Oh wait that's me, I did not get up till 8. Kicking myself all morning as the light would have been fantastic. I should have been out shooting.

    Nice moon BTW. ;-)

    Don't worry Matt. When you join me in June we'll be getting up plenty early, so any extra sleep now will serve you well!
     
  12. I figured we were not even going to sleep, so getting up early is just fine with me.
     
  13. Stunning, those color differences are unreal.
