Road trip!

Scott and I are seriously considering cruising on up to Yosemite for the ‘encore‘ of conditions for Ansel Adam’s iconic Moon and Half Dome photo.

During a previous encore – a recreation of conditions for Adams’ ‘Autumn Moon’ in 2005, some 300 photographers showed up. The last Moon and Half Dome concurrence, in December 1994, drew about 40 photographers, who endured snow, cold, overcast skies and a partially obscured moon. We’re working on the details and logistics… tire chains, hotel, adjusting the equipment portfolio…

    Sounds like good fun! I tried this once, albeit in a different location:
    The Tetons - Snake River

    Don’t know what Yosemite location is like but there’s actually a parking lot in the spot where he made this Snake River shot.

    Re: your photo – excellent! Love it…. who says a ‘pencil’ can’t take photographs (except, of course, the union).

    The Yosemite shot was made from the meadow by the Ahwahnee Hotel… not quite as easy but easy enough for us gimps, I hope.
