Re: Rising moon and sunset over Fox Ridge

For C&C it's difficult to choice between three different shots! Do I praise the good one or do I make critics on an other one. Mainly people like to here the good things, so I go for the seconds as I find that one magnificent. It is so delicate composed with such nice transparancies and fading colors where needed that the other two can't stand in it's shadow. Maybe I personal would clone out that grey rectangle left from the yucca. Beautiful shot.

I call this place Fox Ridge for the fox that show up here at sunset. My wife and I hiked up here on Sunday and saw two deer near the top, which is rare for this 4200 foot high ridge, a mile or two from any surface water. Before the Station Fire of 2009 there was a fiberglass cistern just over the rise that saved water for the animals to drink. That water attracted deer and fox. We're starting to see them return again this year. I want to build another watering trough.

The low grey box in the middle is a concrete cistern that holds 6500 gallons of water, locked up for use by the Forest Service. I told Andrew a story about this place below my photo in the Sunday Scapes thread about Strawberry Peak.

For perspective, the same place seen from the other direction a few months ago when the yucca were blooming. Concrete tank on the left and burnt tree just past it.

Fox Ridge

The same ridge looking towards the road/trail. The tank is visible here too. We like to picnic in the shade of these trees.
