Rising Moon Over Red Peak

Last month the clouds obscured the rising moon when I was at Washburn Point. When I arrived here on Friday there were a few clouds overhead. Since I wasn’t going to leave, I had to wait to see if the conditions improved. I knew it was time for the moon to rise, but no moon. About 5 minutes later I can see it starting to rise over the clouds and Red Peak. I thought the black and white looked better.
