Photo of the Week: Almost full moon over Santa Fe

Moon over Santa Fe 6.16, photo Steve Collins

This Photo of the Week was taken just past the June 2011 full moon. The wonderful colors are from the smoke from forest fires, mostly the huge Wallow Fire in eastern Arizona.

If you have any great full moon photos, contact us, we’d love to see them. We’re always on the lookout for guest photos to feature.

    This shot reminds me of an impressionist painting. Really like how the black give way to the sunset.

      Hi, Ted - I spent a lot of time and and took a lot of shots to get that picture. I need a tripod and a remote to get the picture I really want. There was a lot of light. The main thing is it’s a learning process. That’s what keeps it interesting…
