Magenta Moonrise, Half Dome, Yosemite

Posted by
Gary Hart (California, United States) on 2 December 2011 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

I guided my Yosemite fall workshop group to Tunnel View on the last sunset of the workshop, then kept my fingers crossed hoping that the clouds wouldn't preempt the promised moonrise. While the moon never made a complete appearance, it did peak through, and the clouds added a special element all their own. You can read more about it here.

Hi Gary - I saw this the other day but was not able to take a good long look or comment. I just love your title here which, of course, is extremely appropos, but it also has a mystical emotion that it lends to accompany the beautiful image here. Hopw amazing that must be to witness this beauty unfolding....The moon is huge and gorgeous here, and the tones are exquisite. I love this one, Gary. Hope you have been well, sir!
