Blue moon

I went out to photograph the sun setting over Eldorado Canyon Thursday night which also happened to be the night of the full moon. I was confident there would be a nice sunset because there were enough broken clouds there was also a lot of dirt, smoke, and water vapor hanging in the air. I really struggled to get anything usable but was able to snap a few good shots. I'm still finding my way around the Canon 70D but I'm not sure what was causing me so much trouble.

Facing east with the Canon 70D on a tripod. I used exposer bracketing to build an HDR image but chose only one of the photos. You can see the dirt and smoke in the air.

I took this photo just before sunset because I thought it was pretty. I used the Canon G15 point and shoot in HDR mode facing south. That land is on the other side of the highway and use to be Rocky Flats.
