Moonrise in Northern Arizona's Verde Valley

Okay.  Not totally speechless...  although the view from the train was more than magnificent!  The awesome beauty of Arizona's "other Grand Canyon" made for one of the most memorable Christmas season's I've seen in six decades!  I'll share more with you in this week preceding the new year.

We're blessed to live in Arizona!

Atilla,

Now there's an idea!  And Wheatmark Publishing would be the right publisher.  Happy New Year to you and the family.

Wow, that is amazing! Please tell me the train wasn't moving though while you took this? I'd be curious to know what camera you're using? I've been playing around with a Nikkon D40 and it's still not delivering the quality I'd like. It's probably more the user than equipment though ;-)

Colleen,

It's a Panasonic Lumix from Costco.  About two years old, it set me back just over $200.

Connie Lou,

If only I could make money at it!  LOL
