Sunrise or Moonrise?

Is this Sunrise or Moonrise? Of course it’s a bit of a trick question – the few stars in the sky give it away.

It’s the almost Full Moon rising over Main Beach at Broome, in the Kimberley. It was a beautiful sight – and looks a bit like a sunrise 🙂

They have a ‘Staircase to the Moon’ festival at Broome every Full Moon – market stalls etc. There was quite a large turnout. As the Full Moon rises more, the reflections in the water on the mud flats make it look like ‘steps’ to the Moon, hence the name.

Thanks for looking!
