Half dome MOON RISE

  Photo Location: Yosemite National Park, California  '4-mile trail'   

The last sunset of 2017 was a spectacular one. It began with blazing oranges and reds reflecting off the granite faces, which then quickly cooled to this tranquil magenta-blue scene.  I believe the full-moon and pines framing Half Dome bring a fresh perspective to this often photographed mountain. I feel both grateful and fortunate to have experienced such wonderful photography conditions during my short stay in this region.
