Moonlit Clouds Over Half Dome
I booked a camping trip to Yosemite months in advance in anticipation of photographing the moonbows at Yosemite Falls, only to find completely overcast skies obscuring the full moon, thwarting our lunar rainbow viewing. On a whim, we drove up to Glacier Point that night, where the clearing skies were apparent. We missed the moonbow show, but we had Glacier Point completely to ourselves! Seeing the clouds clearing over Half Dome illuminated by the light of the full moon on a frigid night was well worth it, though, and just goes to show how fleeting and changeable the weather in the Sierras can be. My fingers were completely numb and nearly unable to find the shutter button, and the road was closing in anticipation of snow as we were leaving. It was definitely one of those memorable nights in Yosemite!
