Moonrise Behind El Capitan and Half Dome, Yosemite

Back in April 2011 I was co-instructing Gary Hart's spring Yosemite Workshop when Gary calculated this crescent moonrise at dawn behind El Capitan (left) and Half Dome. Talk about one that almost got away... I had forgotten to take my 300mm lens out of stabilizer mode and unlike today's lenses, that would create unwanted movement as I was on a tripod. I got three sharp images and this was the money shot so someone was smiling down on me :-)
