Here is one of my all-time favorite crescent moon images captured on a Yosemite Workshop that I co-taught with Gary Hart in 2011. NOTE: VIEW A GALLERY OF MY FAVORITE MOON IMAGES BY CLICKING HERE: Don's Moon Gallery Favorites
Gary had precisely calculated that this 3% waning crescent moon would rise between the gap of El Capitan (left) and Half Dome. We knew there were other workshop groups in the Valley that week but surprisingly no one else was at this location off of Highway 120 to capture this amazing scene!
