Red Moon over Scottsdale, Arizona
During the Full Moon on April 5, 2011 I climbed up on my rooftop to snap a few photographs.
In the desert the sunset and moonrise are often times a sight to behold. The dust particles and pollens in the air create the beautiful colors you see above.
The Palm Trees in the foreground and the electrical wires running horizontal give a good contrast to the moon lit sky.
If you look very carefully you can spot two brightly-lit stars in the top of the photo. I'm not sure which stars or planets these are but they add just a little bit of whimsy to the picture.
