39th place
The full moon of 2011/12/09 rising behind the most prominent of the McCullough Peaks, a range of badlands hills east of Cody, Wyoming, USA. The setting sun had a very low horizon, so it was putting out a lot of red light. The image is a bit fuzzy because I was using an old FD mirror lens with an EOS adapter; not the sharpest combination!
