Magic Hour

Moonrise, Glacier Point, Yosemite National Park

We were somewhat disappointed that there were no clouds in the sky to make the sunset more interesting, but I had already calculated that that the moon would soon rise just to the right of Half Dome. And when it did, it was an awesome sight. Even as the last sunlight lit the face of Half Dome, the first slice of the moon announced itself and treated us to this calm, restful scene as the moon rose above the high Sierra peaks in the distance.
