Moonrise Over High Peaks, Pinnacles National Park

Posted by
Don Smith (California, United States) on 25 May 2015 in Landscape & Rural.

Pinnacles National Park is our country's 59th and newest National Park. I have just posted a Gallery of my favorite images: Pinnacles National Park Image Gallery. I have also added a 13-minute video that explains how I plot my moon shots: Plotting a Crescent Moonset at Pinnacles National Park. Here is a big THANK YOU to all of our past and present military members on this Memorial Day. National Parks such as Pinnacles and my freedom to photograph them would not exist without your sacrifices!

Canon EOS 5D Mark III 1/160 second F/11.0 ISO 200 800 mm

Indeed you are so right Don! I am looking at getting 100-400mm lens at some stage with a 2x converter to get that illusive 800mm.
