Clint Cauton didn't wake up early enough to catch the total lunar eclipse on April 4, but he did manage to capture this photo of the moon while part of the Earth's shadow lingered.
He shot the photo just past 6 a.m. at Knoll Hill in San Pedro. The eclipse was the shortest of the century.
"I like how the moon was illuminated against the dark blue morning sky as it was dipping behind the hills," he said.
Cauton used a Nikon D7100 with a Nikkor 70-200mm 2.8 VRII lens.
