Planing my visit to Valley of Fire, State Park in Nevada had to coincide with the rising of the full moon. The Photographer's Ephemeris made things easy. With not another photographer anywhere to be seen finding the right spot was even easier. The only thing I may have wanted in the shot would be a few clouds in the upper right.

Gene, this is FANTASTIC. Your planning paid off big time. What an amazing shot. I'm surprised you had this location to yourself.
Often, events like this draw crowds of photographers. At one time, I was thinking of going to shoot in Yosemite during the famous " firefall " but changed my mind when I found out how crowded it can get.
