I visited Yosemite in April of 2022 with the aim of getting some shots of the Pink Moon (My main focus was getting a shot of the moonbows). The night of the full moon, I hiked five miles and 3,200 feet up Four Mile trail to get to Glacier Point. The road was closed, and parts of the trail were still covered in snow.
After a jaw dropping hike up during sunset, I hit Glacier Point as the moon was rising to the east. I was alone. And the moonbow wasn't supposed to occur until 1:30am.
The skies were clear and cold, so while I waited for three hours, I tried shooting the full moon with all my tools I rented for the job. With a 400mm telephoto lens and a 2x converter, I was able to punch right into the moon. Which also meant I could watch it move across my viewfinder. For something that moves so slow, it moved really fast! I was continually adjusting to keep it in frame.
As the night wore on, I danced around to stay warm. After shooting the moonbow, hiking down from here between 1:30am and 5am was a little outside my comfort zone. Like I said, I was by myself, but I could see headlamps across the valley above Yosemite Falls, and over by the trail up to Mirror Lake. So I wasn't alone in spirit? I still carried my tripod extended like a weapon all the way down.
