12 hour exposure; Full Moon setting over perennial pool
Moonflower (named for the Sacred
Datura with brilliant, white blossoms that open on summer nights) is a
lovely, small canyon near Moab. I spent Thanksgiving night in the
canyon, and awoke to hear a heavy, wet snow hitting my tent around 1am.
Needless to say, the clouds had obscured the moon, and the photograph was
a bust. Luckily, the next night was brilliantly clear, and the moon
set perfectly in the Northwest.
This 12 hour exposure was
made on 8x10 Polaroid, but I have scanned it and reprinted it on cotton
