Full Moon over the Kenai Mountains

Full Moon over the Kenai Mountains

Homer is a strange little town on Alaska's Kenai Peninsula. I had been in Alaska for roughly a month when I made it to Homer, and of that time, there had only been one day in which it didn't rain at all. So when the weather turned beautiful on the afternoon of August 20, 2016, I didn't think there was much of a chance it would stay that way for long. I've never been happier to be wrong. I intended to shoot the sunset from an overlook above town this evening, but ended up getting there too late. Oops. Fortunately, I had a backup plan. I knew there would be a full moon rising shortly after sunset, but wasn't sure of the direction in which it would come up. When I checked my phone and saw that it was going to rise above the Kenai Mountains to the southeast, I knew I was going to be in for a good show. This is one of my favorite photos from my entire summer on the road.

Available in the following sizes (Rectangle B): 12x8, 18x12, 24x16, 30x20, 36x24, 45x30.
