Winter Solstice

Winter Solstice


The weather that makes the best photos can also make the worst.  After several unproductive cloudy nights of shooting, the weather was just right for the full moon to rise on the winter solstice of 2018.  Here we see the moon rising just above Cloud's Rest, framed by El Capitan and Half Dome in Yosemite Valley.  Two images were composited to get the wider dynamic range, but very little editing was done otherwise.  This was truly a spectacular site to witness.


his photo will be printed by a commercial print house that I’ve used for close to a decade and has been in operation since the 1970’s. This is an actual photographic print on Kodak Professional Supra Endura VC Digital paper with a lustre finish, which will last over 100 years in normal display conditions. This process is slightly more expensive than a common inkjet print, but offers an extremely high quality reproduction with exceptional longevity of the print. The print will come pre-mounted to a piece of heavyweight matboard, making it ready to be placed in any frame. If you would like it without the matboard, just let me know after purchasing. Prints usually arrive within 2 weeks of ordering. Shipping is only available within the United States.
