Phoenix, AZ - Super Full Moonset and Sunrise

The plan was to photography the Super Full Moon as it set over Phoenix.  This meant that I was out of the house by 4AM.   I wanted it from the point where McDowell Road raises and goes through the Papago Mountains.  It was a pretty view, but the real thrill was capturing the sun rising behind Four Peaks.

I played with the settings until I could get a decent compromise with the moon's brightness and the darkness of the city.

Happy with my photos, I turned to return to the car and what a sight with the morning sunrise.  I ran back to the car to change lens and set up to watch all the colors unfold.
