---------------

Moonrise at Mono Lake, California. I arrived at my target site on Mono Lake with minutes to spare. My DeLorme PN-20 GPS has a Sun/Moon feature that confirmed the moon rise time, but it also shows a compass with the Sun and moon on it, so I could point the sun symbol towards the setting sun and there was an arrow pointing to the approximate place on the horizon where the moon would come up. I walked a couple of hundred yards until I could line that forecasted rise spot up with the tufa limestone structures that I wanted to shoot. By the way, you can get a Java program for cell phones that support Java that will do the same thing (most phones know your approximate location info from the position of local cell towers, some provide location based services using a GPS signal).

 

The moon started to peek out over the hills right on time, and I adjusted my tripod position maybe 6-12 feet to place the moon where I wanted it in the scene. I started with a 70-200mm lense and gradually worked my way up to a wide angle lens as the sunset darkened and spread across the sky.

 

I often bracket different development settings and tools to use on early edits during postprocessing so I can close in on the best settings and techniques for a given site and lighting conditions.

 

For this result I left the white balance "as shot", but I think the camera saw the scene differently and the actual event was a bit less blue (at least to my mind's perception... there's truly no such thing as "reality" when it comes to white balance and color perception). The light does of course shift more towards blue as sunsets progress, so it could well be my perception or my memory that varies from the event. The people who claim to produce an accurate copy of a given moment crack me up. Accurate to an electronic device, to one person, or to which people, and under which ambient lighting conditions? I don't believe that there is any consistency in color perception from person to person (let alone from the original event to viewing a representation of it under different lighting conditions). The whole claim is a farce. Must I "go with the flow" and pretend, or is it safe to observe that the "just as it happened" emperor truly has no clothes?

 

You can look up times for your next full moon rise (at sunset) and set (at dawn). On June 26, 2010 in Western states we you have the bonus of a penumbral lunar eclipse as the full moon sets to the west just before sunrise. The details and links to moon time calculation resources are provided here:

Poros did have rain while I was there in the month of September and these were the clouds rolling in prior to the rainstorm but it gave the advantage of a different palette. One cannot appreciate the sunshine without the beauty of the rain. It made me think of the turbulent blues of Vincent Van Gogh.

My favorite of the series so far.

I think I found my next big print.

 

Winter is a great time to catch sunsets at Mono Lake. In the Summer the sun heats the surrounding landscape causing strong winds that eliminate reflections of the limestone tufa towers.

 

In the Winter the lack of wind also allows particles in the air from wood stoves, automobiles and power plants to remain relatively close to the ground where it can contribute to the orange tones at sunset.

 

The lack of harmless alkali flies and the reduction in bird populations also make for more pristine reflections.

 

Make sure that you have very warm clothing including gloves and a hat, as temperatures and be in the single digits even before the sun sets. Using fingerless gloves I had a distinct "ice cream headache" in every finger (the ones that I could feel at all anyway) and my hands were stiff and uncomfortable for days, but I'd do it all over again in a heartbeat.

 

Join me here June 3-6, 2009 to catch the full moon rise and to pursue with three other expert instructors other stunning images in the dramatic Eastern Sierra landscape, with classroom sessions on photographic and digital imaging techniques and an optional extension into Yosemite National Park on Sunday, June 7:

The leaves had already begun to fall in some areas of mono County by the time this photo was taken last Friday, and today's high winds aren't going to do the remaining leaves any favors. The leaves which haven't turned yet should be fine once they eventually turn, as long as another storm doesn't blow through and knock them down as well.
