No climbing, just doing a nice solo round trip from Agnew to Garnet, via the River Trail, to Ediza and back to Agnew - over two nights...I just like getting out there and looking around.

However, being new, recently getting back into it all, I would dig on climbing with someone who has the experience...I dig adventure, but also, I hate heights, but love a challenge.

Here's a shot taken of Arrow Peak over Bench Lake in Kings Canyon National Park. You can't see the moon, it was behind me. :unibrow:

Here's another shot taken under a full moon in Lake Basin, Kings Canyon National Park. These are so real it's not even funny, okay?

This one was just pure luck. I was in Pioneer Basin located in the John Muir Wilderness, sitting in my camp above the lake enjoying the stars when this supernova exploded in the sky. I barely got to my camera in time. How many times have you caught lens flare from a supernova?

:D Buck, those are great images, fake or not! Actually, to my highly trained photographic eye, I knew something wasn't right before I got to your disclaimer. Moonlight photography requires long exposures, hence, streaks for stars...:) Also, I have seen that last image somewhere before. ;)

Those photos are cool, anyways. I had fun matching the stars in the "sky" to those in the lake reflections...still cool looking, though too perfect of a star arrangement. Nonetheless...

Here's a fisheye shot of me paddling Mono Lake under a full moon. Isn't the star detail amazing for a full moon? :eek:
