Description

When I was scouting the Mt. Shastha area for unique compositions, I was just thinking aloud on how it would be if the moon were to rise from behind this majestic mountain. Lo and behold, it was the day before full moon and as the sun set in the western sky, the full moon had risen just over the Mt. Shastha. There were just enough clouds in the skies to catch the alpenglow from the setting sun. It was a lucky coincidence, but I walked away with a photo that I was just envisioning.
