Mono Lake Moonrise
Photo By Jeff Sullivan

  • Title: Mono Lake Moonrise
  • State/Province/Region: California
  • Country: United States
  • Nearest Area: Toiyabe National Forest
  • Nearest Town: Lee Vining
  • Brief Directions: This was taken near the Old Marina viewpoint on the shore of Mono Lake, just north of the town of Lee Vining.
  • Description: I arrived at my target site on Mono Lake with minutes to spare. My DeLorme PN-20 GPS has a Sun/Moon feature that confirmed the moon rise time, but it also shows a compass with the Sun and moon on it, so I could point the sun symbol towards the setting sun and there was an arrow pointing to the approximate place on the horizon where the moon would come up. I walked a couple of hundred yards until I could line that forecasted rise spot up with the tufa limestone structures that I wanted to shoot. The moon started to peek out over the hills right on time, and I adjusted my tripod position maybe 6-12 feet to place the moon where I wanted it in the scene. I started with a 70-200mm lense and gradually worked my way up to a wide angle lens as the sunset darkened and spread across the sky.
