Moonset Over The Sierra
- Title: Moonset Over The Sierra
- State/Province/Region: California
- Country: United States
- Nearest Area: White Mountains
- Nearest Town: Big Pine
- Best Season: Autumn
- Description: This shot was taken from high atop the crest of the White Mountains, at about 11,500 feet elevation. The moon was setting about half an hour behind the sun, providing an opportunity for a nice crescent moon, lit up by the dramatic colors of sunset. My particular location allowed me to anchor the photo with the silhouetted crest of the eastern Sierra, giving the image weight and a sense of scale and perspective.
- Gear: Canon 40D, EF100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L
