High Sierra Sunrise Moonset
October 01, 2014 • Leave a Comment
Went to do some day hiking and of course get some nice images in the Eastern Sierra recently with my long time photo friend Jay Schuff. The plan was to hike out of Sabrina Basin one day then move on to Rock Creek to hike to Little Lakes Basin for the day. On my way through Lone Pine the clouds were really great over the Sierra but looking north towards Bishop looked pretty socked in. My friend coming from Tahoe told me it was raining hard in Bishop not looking good for afternoon images. We decided to meet in Lone Pine and camp in the Alabama Hills, where the clouds were dramatic . We spent the afternoon and sunset photographing the changing sky. The full moon was coming up late but was setting in the morning around sunrise. I got up looked out my tent door and saw a beautiful sunrise over Mt Whitney and the moon setting, I quickly set my camera up and got this nice image, which I now have as a 20x40 print in my gallery. It goes to show that plans can change and the luck of photography can be good. The rest of the trip was uneventful but I'm happy with this one image.
