Description

I've been capturing moon rise shots at Mono Lake for over a decade, but this one was going to be the closest, largest, brightest "super moon" rise at sunset since January 1948! The cool, quiet fall air almost guaranteed a great reflection, and I was not disappointed.

Mono Lake is a critical nesting site for up to 90% of California gulls, and it is a vital stop for millions of birds on the Pacific Flyway between Alaska and Patagonia.
