Granite Mountain Moonset Notes
There are only a few days each year when the moon sets at nearly the same time as the sun rises. I captured this moonset December 23, 2018. The slide show begins as the morning sunlight is illuminating the top of Granite Mountain and continues until the moon disappears behind the mountain. The mountain brightens,then dims as clouds in the east block the sun briefly before it brightens the mountain again.
The slide show is a little over 7 minutes long and is set to the first movement of Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata. I do not know who is the pianist so can not give credit.
This show consists of 167 images. The lapsed time between images is 10 seconds.
