Went on top of Sentinel Dome in Yosemite to catch the full moon rising behind Half Dome.
Nature had other plans. The storm clouds rolled in and obscured almost everything. It was so dark at the time I shot this I couldn't even see Half Dome. I had to depend on the long exposure and cross my fingers.

m52- I just set it on 'bulb'. Clicked the cable release. And counted for what I thought might be 30-45sec.

Good timing on the bulb shot, the clouds still look good. The color is different for this location, I like it.


just a few of my thoughts...
