Sunrise Moonrays At Olmstead Point
Photo By Jeff Sullivan

  • Title: Sunrise Moonrays At Olmstead Point
  • State/Province/Region: California
  • Country: United States
  • Nearest Area: Yosemite National Park
  • Nearest Town: Lee Vining
  • Brief Directions: Olmstead Point is just west of Tenaya Lake on the Tioga Pass road in Yosemite National Park.
  • Best Season: Summer
  • Description: The sun was sending light rays over the Eastern horizon, while the moon acted as a giant reflector, sending more of the sun's rays radiating back from the Western horizon. I had high expectations for this sunrise, or at least high hopes. After all, I had looked up the moonset and sunrise times a week or two in advance, checked sun and moon angles for various locations in The Photographer's Ephemeris to select my shooting location, gotten up at 3:55 over by Mono Lake to make it here in time, and to place the foreground hill out of the way for the moonset I decided to hike up the granite slope across the road instead of down to Olmstead Point. To do this landscape photography thing right, it's a far cry from just arrive, point and shoot!
