Fall in Mesa, AZ under the super moon

It is hard to think of Fall colors when leaving the in the desert.  However if you take time to search you will find it in many places here in Mesa, AZ. Last week I wanted to capture the moonrise on New Year's day which was a one of two super moons that will be available in this month.  While waiting for the moon to rise, I was able to capture a glance of the sunset light on the banks of the Salt River right in front of Arizona iconic mountain, Four Peaks. Here are the three images I created from that evening shoot.
