The Moon Rises Over the Rincon Mountains (Black & White, Saguaro National Park)

Over the past few months, I've spent a lot of time studying this one ephemeris program on my iPhone in order to capture the sun rise, moonrise and other star and planet information for photography. On this trip though, I kind of forgot about it and didn't even realize that the moon would be rising early in the late afternoon hours while in Saguaro National Park. So there I was on the Mica View Trail, and I noticed the moon rising over these mountains to my left....and then it dawned on me to find that right spot with some nearby tall saguaro cactus and line them up with the moon as if for a field goal :-)
