This tall red brick building, the Folsom Powerhouse, is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Fed by the American River, this hydroelectric plant was put into operation in 1893 until 1952. It houses four 750-kilowatt electrical generators, driven by four McCormick dual turbines with a capacity of 1260 horsepower, delivering power to Sacramento, California 22 miles away.

I was fortunate to be at California's Joshua Tree National Park as the moon was starting its waning cycle .... and was able to capture this dawn photo of the moon setting in the west. The early morning colors provided an excellent contrast to the moon and the Joshua Tree in the foreground, standing ready to catch them.
