Anticipation, Moonrise, Caballo Lake State Park, Caballo NM, May 5, 2012
This was the biggy of the year, the annual full moon when the moon is closest to the earth. I took a bunch of pictures of the moon rising over the cliffs east of the Rio Grande here at the park. By moving around, side to side and forward and back, I was able to make this moonrise last and last, a good half hour. With some luck I got a few interesting enough to develop into a series. We shall see.

She put the butt end of the flashlight against her forehead, just above the space between her eyebrows. It was something she'd learned long ago about seeing at night. A light shined from there would reveal nothing of herself to a trespasser, and from that spot on her forehead a beam would go straight to the retinas and return to her own eyes the characteristic color of the trespasser's eyeshine. If it had eyes, of course, and if they were looking at her directly.
