Full Moon sets at Sierra La Giganta, Loreto, Baja California Sur

The 2012 Panoramia August Contest requires photos taken to East, West, North or South. I remembered, that one Full Moon Morning I took shots almost simultaneously to the East and to the West. Now let me take the contest one step further: A photo taken at the same time from the same location to the West and the East! This photo here shows the Moon setting at Sierra La Giganta, which borders the Loreto Marine Park Mar de Cortes, Baja California Sur. I just had to go to the West entrance of the house, change the 30->46mm lens versus a 100-300mm and wait 2 minutes, as I wanted the Full Moon to almost "touch" the ground to give a better feeling for dimensions with the brushes in between. Here the EXIF data:
