Moonlight in the mountains

I had a lot of technical difficulties but did manage to catch the reflection of the moon on the snow here.


Here you see Alpine Meadows lit up by the full moon. There are a couple planets up there in the sky, or perhaps they are stars, but awfully big ones! The lights on the mountain are people working. They are grooming the slopes. Interesting job, eh?


Earlier in the evening, while I was still in Nevada, I was able to capture one shot of the moon rise that wasn’t too blurred.

Moonrise in March

The DSLR was not cooperating tonight, but fortunately the little Panasonic could handle the job. I just didn’t have a tripod for it, nor a remote shutter control. But the sensor and intelligence in the camera are remarkable. The Panasonic saved the day…or in this case, the night!
