Supermoon at the Salt Flats

It's not every day you get to see a moon this spectacular.  I wasn't about to pass up the chance.

Making the long drive from Orem to the Bonneville Salt Flats with a couple of friends, we took a little walk around, snapped some shots of the surrounding beauty, and then managed to be surprised and enchanted by the sudden appearance of a huge, dark moon.

We were lucky, truthfully.  We only had about a five-minute window in which to capture the moon at all.  We saw it just as it was cresting the horizon line, and right before it went behind the cloud cover that had been looming all day.  And of course, photos couldn't actually capture the sheer size and scope of it -- but I hope I managed to capture a little of the beauty.
