Moonrise over Del Cerro

San Diego had perfect weather to see the closest approach of the moon this year.   It rose over the Del Cerro hills flooding the canyons with bright reflections of the season.    As the moon rises it appears even larger than it will later in the night when it’s higher in the sky.  With this closest approach we could see this years largest moon appearance, an illusion but beautiful.   My home, third from right, sits on the rim of this canyon.  Driving home from work I saw this scene and could not pass up an opportunity to take a picture similar to “Moonrise, Hernandez, New Mexico 1941” by Ansel Adams.
