Posted on 11/02/2012 9:16:50 PM PDT by SunkenCiv
Explanation: A Full Moonset can be a dramatic celestial sight, and Full Moons can have many names. Late October's Full Moon, the second Full Moon after the northern hemisphere autumnal equinox, has been traditionally called the Hunter's Moon. According to lore, the name is a fitting one because this Full Moon lights the night during a time for hunting in preparation for the coming winter months. In this scene, last week's Hunter's Moon shines with a rich yellow light, setting as dawn comes to the Italian Alps. Topping out at over 11,000 feet, the snowy peak known as Rochemelon glows, just catching the first reddened light of the rising Sun.

Very nice...thank you
This looks shooped.
I can tell from teh pixels and from seeing quite a few shoops in my time.
Looks reel to me....
Oh my gosh... that picture is just so beautiful and serene.
I don’t think that pic is shooped. The evil black dude shows up and makes nicey nice with the King and the King dies a couple of months later. Coincidence? I think not.
Camera Model Name; Canon EOS 5D Mark IIDang it, the only difference between the above gear and my Nikon is this Canon has a 'Full Frame' sensor with more MP, and my Nikon D3000 has a DX sensor with fewer Mps. So 'in theory' I should be able to take the same exact photo. But for the life of me I can't get 'Moon Photos', right. (yes I use a tripod).

Odd looking nebula, Civ!
What do you mean, the nebula run is done??
Yeah, I’m gonna miss the nebulas.
