This is a photo I had been planning for several years. Mesa Arch is a very popular location for sunrise photos where the bottom of the arch is aglow with sunlight. I had often thought that a moon rise might have the same effect. The June full moon is known as the Rose Moon. Wind in the area had a lot of the red desert dust in the air. When the moon rose it was almost red. I waited until the night after the full moon so that moon rise was well after sunset at the end of the Blue Hour.

Not the Sun but rather nearly Full Moon that had just rose above the horizon.
