Moonset Over Yucca Forest and Santa Elena

After making some night exposures of the stars above the yucca, the light began to turn to the gray of early twilight. The moon was hanging over the top of Santa Elena Canyon too.

I decided to remake the image to one with all three elements in it. The light was still early and I would like for the first light of the sun to be striking the canyon with the moon still over the wall, but I was one day too early for that image.

I filled the frame with yucca, showing the canyon walls and the moon just peaking over the top.

I made the image, watched the moon set, and waited for first light.
