Horse Head Eclipse

From the photographer: "The partial lunar eclipse of 2012/06/04 at about 11:23:00UT, just before local dawn. The Moon is setting behind the Absaroka Range mountains, southwest of Cody, Wyoming, USA. Just below the moon is a snow bank called the Horse’s Head, which forms every spring as the deeper snows melt. Tradition says that when the horse’s “reins” are cut or it’s “throat” is slit, that marks the end of high water on the area streams and rivers. Castle Rock, a pinnacle of volcanic stone, lies in the foreground of the image."
