Starry Half Dome

Another capture from our trip up to Glacier Point. We spent a fair amount of time shooting from up there. The full moon really helps light the valley and all the valley faces. This was great but made it more of a challenging to lock down the stars. Though, I'm from L.A. I know how to deal with crazy light pollution at low elevations. You Yosemite folks don't know how you good you have it!

By the time of this capture, our gang of 6 had already frightened away the weak. Soon after, the ranger roped of the point due to unsafe methane levels.
