Sketch of the Week: Moon Rising

Last week I showed you a drawing I'd done of a goose walking out across the frozen Bitter Lake. It turns out that day was full of striking images, for about an hour later, as I was making my way back to the car, I turned around to see this moonscape:

Bitter Lake is a beautiful spot to watch the sunset, which was one of the reasons why I had gone out there that day, but this, a golden moon rising over a landscape of primary colors, was equally stunning. Living in New Mexico, it's not difficult to enjoy great views of the moon, but it never ceases to fill me with awe.
