Astounding great shot!
Leading line to the mountain canyon.
Leading line of the canyon to the moon.
Three-D layering of the clouds.
And then the moon!

Thank you all. Had to get the family out of bed at 4:30 am and drive 2 hours to get it! Even in winter RMNP gets crowded.

I like a tighter crop of this without the foreground - although if you could have been closer to the lone tree it may have worked well. In any case the moon and mountains really pop.
