When the first quarter moon sets around midnight, the sun is below your feet. See? Good time to get a 3-D sense of the moon as a world in space, always half-illuminated by the sun. Animation created from images of setting first quarter moon, June 12, 2016, by Peter Lowenstein in Mutare, Zimbabwe.
"The Posing Moon @ Midnight" This was the right place at the right time when the moon was about to set. This shot is taken at midnight in Alaska @ Denali National Park and Preserve. Its alignment between the snow clad mountains and the sky was just right. Personally feel this is a "Lucky Shot".
If you're the sort of person who thinks nothing of a midnight turn on the dance floor, you can handle mixing up a simple dough or cracking a couple of eggs while the moon sets sail across the sky. Then, when morning comes, flip on the oven or stovetop, and sip your coffee smugly while breakfast essentially makes itself.
