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.

Hot Creek is a hidden little river that runs through desert East of the Sierra Nevada. It’s name comes from the volcanic pools that come to the surface next to the river and mix with the ice cold water. As a result it has long been a popular place for swimming and skinny dippers after dark. But this beauty has teeth too and a number of people have been burned by sudden changes in the currents. The shifting breeze brings the familiar smell of sulfur lofting up from the canyon below. The river seemed to glow in the moonlight as two bathers made their way down to dip in the warm waters under a moonlit sky.

A Harvest Moon rises over the calm waters of Bass Lake in the California Sierra Nevada Mountains. It’s been so long since I lived in the mountains I had forgotten that the rise and set of the sun and moon are delayed due to the high mountains that surround you. So I waited for the last Full Moon of Summer to rise over the lake near North Fork. I was hoping for a moon at sunset but due to the mountains on the far horizon it took the moon an additional 40 minutes by which time the skies had faded. I improvised and use the trees and my hand to cut down on the brightness of the moon. Yes, my hand acted as an ND filter to reduce the exposure time on the sky. Sort of a poor man’s method but in this case just too lazy to run back up to the car and get the filters.

After shooting the wife and I took a drive around the moonlit lake. Stunning to see the full moon shimmering in the water between the pines. It’s nice being back in the Mountains.
