Entries in moon (2)


moon, mountain, alpenglow

Have you been to Glacier National Park? It is absolutely amazing, everywhere you look. There is this really cool road carved right into the mountainside named Going to the Sun Road. There are plenty of pull outs along the way to jump out and take in the scenery on it’s climb up and over Logan Pass.

We made it to the top in time for sunset and grab this photo of Mt Reynolds with the moon passing by. Be on the lookout for mountain goats and rams. It is crazy some of the vertical faces they can climb up! Very cool!

I’m going to have to get back here one day with my bike and cycle up Going to the Sun. Looks like 30+mi and 7,000ft of elevation gain. Hard work going up but awesome going down! :)

Usually my work travel takes me to the Pacific Northwest or Midwest but a meeting in Phoenix let me get to Tucson for a couple days.  I was lucky enough to live there for w few years (15 years ago) and interestingly it hasnt changed much.  The funny thing is the city and the people remind my very much of Portland if you ignore the climate differences.

This awesome place is just outside Tucson, AZ (city lights off in the distance). I scrambled up a rocky hill in the dark to get to this view point and used a wide angle lens capture both the up and down sides of the pass. It was an awesome view with a near full moon out to illuminate the bluffs and cactus!

I thought I was sure to run into a rattlesnake but after an hour and seeing nothing I started flipping over rocks trying to at least see a scorpion. Believe it or not, I couldnt even find one of those - I felt a little let down, ha ha!

A combination of 6 exposures - one for the night sky and city, two for foreground and mountains, and a few for the car trails all hand blended in Photoshop.
