Sometimes your plans just don’t happen as you hope they would. This was the case this evening when I hiked up Green Mountain in Lakewood to try to get a shot of Denver and the rising full moon. I was in the place I wanted to be, however the clouds prevented the moonrise from being visible at my location. Getting to the location ahead of time to look at the options for the shot I was thinking about getting. In addition to scouting the area, I also had the chance to photograph and as the sun was setting over the Rocky Mountains a trail runner and his dogs came down the path leading to the image for day two.
