We went to see the Yosemite forest fire that had broken out in Little Yosemite Valley south of Half Dome. We arrived just in time to see the full moonrise over the distant peaks to the south. If you look closely you can see some smoke in the forest from the raging wildfire just off screen. Unfortunately it wasn't possible to get both in the shot due to the angle but it was a beautiful site without the devastating wildfire.

Half Dome is silhouetted by the raging fire that crossed over Little Yosemite Valley and climbed the cliffs of some of the most famous views in one of America's most famous parks. Forest that John Muir walked through are now nothing but ash and stumps. It is sad to see this beautiful forest burn but the drought has claimed much of California's beautiful back country and the season is far from over. Fire fighters fought the fire until dark. Rangers worked to get (hopefully) everyone out safely. The fire was fast moving and by afternoon had consumed a good portion of some of the best trails in the park. And it's not out yet.

I rushed out to get a sunset knowing was likely too late. We got down to the lake and color from the sunset had just started to fade. I managed a few descent shots before it was nearly gone and the stars were starting to show in the twilight sky. My hopes were just slipping away when the real light show began. Bolts of lightning began striking all around the south side of Bass Lake. I walked down the beach to point the camera at the near Full Moon and just as I started clicking off the shots we caught lightning.

On the left you see the lights of The Pines Resort nestled down in the forest on the shore of Bass Lake. To the right just above Goat Mountain the full moon lights up the thunderheads. Just off center, Thor throw's down a Peace Sign and it reflects in the lake perfectly. I would get a number of other shots as the clouds continued to build but it doesn't get much better than this.

Blood Red Moon April 15th 2014. Taken by me and my son Thomas Atkeson from our back deck at Bass Lake California.

The eclipse was seen across North America and much of South America.

More lunar eclipses coming up later this year and early next.

A full moon clears Clouds Rest to shine light down on Yosemite Valley as the last rays of the sun illuminate El Capitan and the peaks above Bridal Veil. Man of the peaks still show signs of last week’s snowstorm and help to catch the last fading light of the sun.
