Crescent Moonrise at Dawn, Yosemite

Posted by
Don Smith (California, United States) on 16 July 2020 in Landscape & Rural.

Back in 2011 I was co-teaching a Yosemite Gary Hart's Workshop. Gary plotted this crescent moonrise between El Capitan and Half Dome just as dawn began. It was just one of those memorable moments in nature when there are no do-overs. I captured this with a 300mm.

Canon EOS-1Ds Mark III 4 seconds F/11.0 ISO 200 300 mm
