The image on the cover is of the full moon setting behind lenticular clouds over the Front Range. It was taken in late October 2012 by Alan C. Stine from the deck of his home in Southeast Aurora. Stine used a Nikon D40 camera with an AF-S Nikkor 55-300mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR zoom lens and made automatic color and contrast corrections using Picasa. Stine is an associate judge with the Aurora Municipal Court and Chair of the Board of Directors of Colorado Legal Services.
