Right place, right time. After 3.5 hours drive from the Bay Area to Yosemite National Park I barely made it on time. Just in time for the clearing winter snow storm before another one hit the Sierra Nevada Mountains, it was also a full moonrise at the iconic location of Tunnel View.
I hurriedly set up my tripod and snap my camera, fired several shots. Then, did my usual photography drill; checked the settings, composition and observed the changing weather condition. To my surprise, the rising full moon started to lit the low fog, illuminating the trees underneath.
Quickly, I changed my lens from a wide angle to a mid-range lens, my Canon 50mm f/1.8 to get a closer and better image with the low-light condition. With the long exposure setting I was able to expose 4 images, the light changes so fast. This is the my favorite image I took and converted it to Black-and-White for more dramatic and appealing mode.
