Scott comes through

05010117.jpgYesterday evening we scrambled a bit desperately for Scott’s promised ‘InstaPost Package,’ to no avail, forcing us to whip up a post which included twice-warmed-over blog content.

Today, however, Scott provides this gem from The Ansel Adams Gallery Blog:

“On November 28th a celestial “encore” of Moon and Half Dome will appear in the sky east of the Ahwahnee Meadow in Yosemite National Park. The moon will be a fraction of a degree north of where it was on December 28th, 1960, when Ansel made this photograph.

Texas State University astronomer Donald W. Olson and his team have studied Ansel’s famous moon photographs and worked out the exact dates the negatives were made. To do this they had to find the precise location of his camera to calculate the position of the moon and sun. In honor of this event, our weekly photography class In the Footsteps of Ansel Adams will present a special program focused on the making and printing of Ansel’s famous image of Moon and Half Dome on Saturday November 28th, starting at 12:30 p.m. The fee is $95.00 and includes our logo camera strap. Please see our website for more information, or call us at 209-372-4413.” Thank you Scott… we had another long day today…
