Swiss Alps in the moonlight

Full moon rising over the Swiss Alps

I’m not very good at sleeping. So when a full moon rose over the mountains out my hotel room window I figured my time was better spent trying to set up my camera for this shot than laying in bed trying to get back to sleep. This was the view from the bed though.

Happy, warm thoughts during my least favorite month of the year.

Moon, Jupiter, Sun rise

Dawn @ Sycan Ranch (Beatty, Oregon)

We just got back from two nights at our friends’ ranch. We were planning on staying three nights, but winter storm warnings for tomorrow caused us to leave a day early.

I got up before the sun this morning to take some photos. The temperature outside was a balmy 15 degrees Fahrenheit. The ponds on the property were all frozen over. The kids went ice skating later in the day.

The white dot under the moon in this photo is Jupiter. The sun made its appearance about 15 minutes later.

Moonrise on the Rogue River

A couple weeks ago I posted a photo of the moon setting in the early hours over the Wild and Scenic portion of the Rogue River. Today’s photo is from two night’s prior when the moon wasn’t quite full. Also, I used a long exposure which meant no details on the moon like that prior photo.

Full moon over the Wild & Scenic Rogue River

I learned many things on our trip down the wild and scenic portion of the Rogue River. One thing learned was what “wild” and “scenic” mean. Wild means the river is inaccessible except by trail (or raft) and the river still looks like “primitive America”. Scenic means the shorelines are undeveloped. Such is the case for the Rogue River between the Grave Creek and Foster Bar Boat Ramps, a span of about 40 miles.

Another thing I learned is that I can’t sleep well under a full moon. Today’s photo was taken at 5:51 a.m. There was an electric bear fence to our right which I heard buzzing all night long. We weren’t inside the bear fence, and we were the first campers on this side of camp so if a bear was to wander through from this direction we would be the first to discover its presence. In addition, the bugs decided to buzz around my ears when they weren’t partaking of my flesh. I’m glad these things are mere memories now. Actually, the marks still remain, but they no longer itch for the most part.
