We got a call last night from blog reader and salmon charter extraordinaire, Captain Kid.  He said, “take a look out the window and check out the moon”.  I looked, no moon.  Perfect I thought, this gave me a couple of minutes to get everything ready and to get in to place.  Thanks Captain!

  3. Love this image Ron! I’ve always been a fan of moon over mountain shots (Art Wolfe’s got a famous one), and this is spectacular. Like Gowtham, wondering how you handled the exposure.

    Thanks!

    You know, I thought I was going to need two exposures to maintain detail in the moon. This frame was underexposed by one stop for the moon. I actually preferred the mountains in this darker version – I liked the mood created by the dark blue, so this ended up being a single exposure.

  6. Sweet..shot Now that I have put the boat away for the winter, it’s snowmachine time. I also look forward to a June Whale of a time I hope we can put a trip together, maybe take Val and Janine.
    Thanks Captain KId..

  10. Ron, I don’t know what I am more impressed with – the killer shot, or the fact someone can call you to look out your window and you have this view…
