Moonrise at Mono Lake

Often the best moon images are on the evening before the full moon so we went down to Mono Inn for dinner on July 31.
We were not the only ones hoping for a spectacular shot but as we would find the following night, there were cloud in the east.  At last, the moon rose above the clouds.
Cameras came out.
And the setting sun turned the clouds pink and lavender below the silvery moon.

Se more views of the sky above us at SkyWatch, Friday hosted for us by Sandy and Sylvia.
