Hmmm, now that I see the image on my phone, it is reminiscent of ERB's Barsoom and Cluros. (Mars and Deimos)

EDIT:  This event occurred this past week.  So, it is now history as they say...
 
Don't forget, tonight you have a chance to witness a spectacular lunar eclipse when the moon turns 'red.' The show begins around 11pm PST and lasts until 2:30am PST. If you want to know more, check out this video from Michael Zeiler https://vimeo.com/89766307.

This image was taken during a lunar eclipse on December 10, 2011. This was a unique opportunity when the eclipsed moon was setting behind Mount Shasta. Definitely an experience I will never forget. 

Share with your friends and let them know about tonight's eclipse!

Stay warm and enjoy!

Upper Yosemite Fall by Moonlight

Having learned how to use my software tools better, I reprocessed this image taken from 2013.  I hope you like it:)

Best viewed at full-resolution (1,400px).

Only about 5 more weeks before Yosemite Valley peaks wrt waterfalls, dogwoods, rivers, and meadows!

El Cap first light
March 23, 2014

This is a portrait-orientation version of a scene I posted last month taken not long after sunrise.  I like it a bit better because it shows more of the river and the foreground boulder.

Lunar Eclipse Next Week!
 
Photographing the Lunar Eclipse

On the night of April 14th and 15th viewers in North and South America will be able to see a total lunar eclipse. Most people should be able to see the whole eclipse sequence (weather permitting), though viewers in the far northeast will miss the very end of the event.
I’ve photographed several lunar eclipses, and they’re spectacular events to view and photograph. This one is special, however, because it’s the first time I might be able to see the whole eclipse sequence from beginning to end. In California the eclipse will seen almost due south. This is not a great alignment for Yosemite Valley, though it should be possible to see the eclipse over Cathedral Rocks or Sentinel Rock. But California is a diverse state with many other possible locations, so I’ll be thinking about other possible locations between now and the 14th.

If you’re interested in photographing the eclipse, I’ve written a guest post about it for the Borrowlenses.com blog. Although I’ve posted other articles about eclipses before, this new article is the most complete and comprehensive, with details about focusing in the dark, revised exposure times, how to align the eclipse with a foreground object (like a building, mountain, or tree), and more.

This is one night when I hope the clouds will stay away. :-)

Ocean Currents
Shell Beach, California

This is a 10-second exposure which shows the paths of of the water flow, makes the water color more apparent, and finally, it smooths the surface of the ocean.  I used a neutral density filter to enable a longer exposure. Another trick which helped to obtain a long exposure was using ISO 50 which doubled the exposure time vs. the normal ISO 100 setting most commonly used for landscape photography.

I'm not sure I agree they are the same, would be interesting to compare results sometime.  I get 2x longer exposure with lens aperture of choice and no blowing out of bright pixels.
