Cranes, Train & A Full Moon on Winter Solstice

Sunset on solstice at Beaver Point.


Crane Point at dusk a half mile north of Beaver Point.


A mile north of Beaver Point a lone crane stretches his wings in the afterglow reflecting off the river.


The full moon exposes a wolfman lurking in the clouds.


A train passing by flickers through the bare cottonwoods on the other side of the river.


The lone crane ponders the paparazzo on the bank.


The full moon exposes a dragon in the clouds.


Lights from traffic on I-25 through the bare cottonwoods on the other side of the river.

Thanks, Michelle.
Oh wow stunning photos. I love the one peeking through the trees. I love them all. Cranes are so funny with their long legs! :)

Thanks, Angela. We got a clear view of the full moon last night, but it was really dark when it came up. The moon in the photos above was 99.6% full and if it wasn't for the clouds, I might have been able to photograph it coming up when the Sandias were pink.
All wonderful shots but since the full moon was not visible for me I appreciate those. The solitary crane is still probably my favorite, as it appears to be for others. A wonderful solstice celebration, thank you.
