Moonlit Landscape: A 60-minute long single exposure

Headlight Basin, Ingalls Pass

 

I've always thought of bright moonlight, a waxing full moon about 95% illuminated in this case, as a curse to astophotography. Well, not anymore. The photo above tells you why my perception has changed.

 

This is a 60-minute long single exposure taken two nights after the first full moon this August. I've deleted my previous post which is a 30-minute long exposure. Must view on black to see the extra color pop.
