sunset and moonrise on Coney Mtn.

Hiked up Coney Mtn. to photograph the sunset and the "super moon" - the full moon. Clouds and thunderheads forming to the west, so I didn't really get much of the moon before needing to head down the mountain. I didn't even see the moon until it was fairly high above the horizon due to the clouds. Accompanied by Tulip the wonder dog. Photos (except Tulip) are my first attempts at HDR compositions. Got back to my vehicle just as the rain started.

Nice photos. Interesting that the shape of the illuminated area looks rectangular.
