The Story:

This was the night of the blood moon of 9/27/15,    and I was fortunate enough to be in the San Juan Mountains between Ouray and Telluride.   I was shooting with my friends Doug and Laura Bennett, who brought along their friend Bob Vixie.        Bob had a huge telescope with a way to attach a camera to it.         This image is actually a composite of the moon, a silhouette of a hill from the area, and a tree from my home town of Corrales.          When I first posted the shot on Facebook, Bob responded and told me he hadn't explained that the telescope caused the moon to be upside down!    I later fixed it but not before getting a good laugh out of it.   Thanks to Bob, Doug and Laura for this shot.
