A near full Moon rising over the mountains of the Chugach National Forest, Seward, Alaska.

This was from Wednesday afternoon.  I have thousands of variations of this scene, but I just can’t help myself.  It is funny, but when you see these amazing mountains day after day, they lose a bit of there impressiveness – I begin to take them for granted just a little bit.  I must say, after spending 6 weeks in the desert, I’m now reminded of just how beautiful these jagged peaks with a fresh coating of snow really look – they are stunning!

  1. hey Ron,

    They are indeed stunning. I was up at Hatcher’s this afternoon – amazing sunset over the mtns, but my camera was down in the truck, not over my shoulder.

    Great shot – placement of the moon is perfect.

    Cheers

  3. This is a great composition because we have all seen days when the sun is setting and it turns into this pink glow. The color on the mountain makes the moon pop so much more!
