Mount Baldy moonrise

2013-10-19 Mt Baldy moonrise

Last Saturday London and I were stargazing up on Mount Baldy. I knew the waning gibbous moon was going to rise a little before 8:00. What I had not anticipated is how awesome it would look, coming up through the trees on the next ridge over, a mile or so away. And because I had not anticipated that, I didn’t have the camera with me.

So, nothing for it: we had to go back up the mountain Sunday night, with the camera this time, just to catch the moonrise. Up top is the tweaked and left-right corrected version, below is the raw image.

Next month I want to go back and catch the full moon rising. I’ll keep you posted.

  1. Congratulations — your best image yet.


  2. Stunning image. Dramatic. Convert it to black and white, high contrast, and it would look like something from the Ansel Adams catalog.
