Bird, wildlife, and landscape photography by Jon Rista
A Purple Sky Moon
The last time I was at Cherry Creek, I photographed an amazing migration of Canada Goose. Shortly after that episode, the skies turned some of the most vibrant and unusual colors, fading from a bright orange right at the horizon, to reddish above the mountains, to various shades of pink and purple and deep violet overhead. As I looked up, there hung the half moon, crisp and stark against this sea of royal colors.
