Milky Way over Minaret Lake

    Newer Older

    I was so tired after hiking up to this point. After we got up to the top and set up camp, I set my alarm for 11:30PM and went right to bed. As I hiked out to this lookout point under the stars, the moon rose over the distant mountains and illuminated the towering cliffs over Minaret lake in the Ansel Adams WIlderness.

    Marcell de Barros, haakonsundbo, and 300 other people added this photo to their favorites.

      Perfectly done, Clay!
      I like the extra illumination from the moon light. It almost looks like a twilight shot.
