MOON OVER BELEN


Coming in from Belen's Neel Alexander Municipal Airport on Calle de Llano tonight, this is the site that greeted my tired eyes. I had to pull off the road, get out of my truck and try to capture the view for posterity.

The moon was full in he sky and casting its glow on the city of Belen, in spite of the hazy sky. A string of lights stretching north to south outlined the city. All told, a beautiful sight. But with the freezing weather and a string gusty wind, my shaking fingers had a hard time trying to hold the camera steady. So the picture you see is the picture you get. Sometime this summer, when the moon is full and the night is warm, I'll revisit the scene and come up with something better.
