Since capturing the moonset near the Whitney Crest in my photo, "Transition," I had hoped to get a photo of the moon directly above Mt. Whitney itself--particularly given that it is the tallest peak in the contiguous 48 states. After a lot of research, I chose this particular weekend to attempt the shot. Although the first morning didn't deliver the composition I was seeking, the second morning produced nearly perfect conditions--including this moment when Mt. Whitney appeared to be literally cradling the moon.
