Description

I wish I did not submit this. The stars are washed out in the low resolution picture. Please disregard. This picture was taken under a crescent moon. I wanted to take advantage of the ambient light from the moon at the right phase. I needed enough light from the moon to light the scene from the reflection in the water out to Half Dome without washing out the stars. I planned on coming back to this spot as the moon waxed enough to take advantage of the ambient light. Additionally, I wanted to capture the moon light as it created changing shadows on the beach across the river during the night. I came back to this site several times during the night to observe the shadows and take shots as the light changed.
