14th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
"Moonset" near Banff

I was returning from shooting sunrise shots in the Canadian Rockies when I noticed the harvest moon was low in the sky. It struck me that if I drove in the right direction I might catch it just before it set below a massive peak just outside Banff. I stopped quickly set up my tripod and was able to get just a couple of shots before it set.
