A Marvelous Morn for a Moonset

We were just sitting down into our window chairs to enjoy our morning coffee and noticed that the nearly full moon was setting through the trees.
So, we abandoned our coffee, slipped into our boots and jackets and ran out to the prairie to watch the moon set.
Bushwhacking through the brush to the road, I just caught the early morning moon sinking over Douglas before the sky became too bright.  Too bad all those folks driving to work couldn't see the beautiful moon behind them.

Gosh, she's a beauty, all right.

We were at a cabin just north of Grand Marias when the full moon came up Tuesday evening the 7th. The cabin faces south, so the sun rose and set over Lake Superior. When the moon rose it was looking directly at the sun which was below the horizen from our point of view. But the moon for a few minutes was the brightest most vivid shade of orange. It looked like another sun. My camera could get the color but not a good picture.
