El Capitan at midnight....
I was at yosemite for the super moon and shot El Capitan with a 2 minute exposure from the meadow in front. the super moon provided great fill light on the face. there was a bunch of climbers on Rock, and we could see a ton of headlamps high on the face, under a perfect starry sky. it's only a four hour drive from San Francisco through sierras and it's a beautiful drive. reserve your campgrounds early because they are full this time of year. you can also stay at yos lodge or awahnee lodge in park. you can also travel down hwy 140 just 20 mins past park entrance to stay at a few hotels and a campground called cedar lodge campground. if you want to photograph, now is the time for clean night shots with such clear skies. remember pack it in, pack it out~
