I scheduled my time in Yosemite to get the full moon rising at sunset. Mother nature had other plans. I was lucky enough to get this shot, the light only lasted about a minute!

Are the bright colors due to sunset ? Beautiful combination of sorts.

Behind The Lens

Location
Yosemite National Park, CA
Time
Sunset
Lighting
I had no control of the lighting, mother nature gave me about a minute to get this photograph.
Equipment
Canon EOS Rebel T1i, 17-85 mm IS-USM Canon lens @ 18mm, tripod mounted and circular polarizer.
Inspiration
I planned to photograph the moon rise at sunset over EL Capitan and mother nature had other plans.
Editing
Very little post processing : some shadow and highlight adjustments is all.
In my camera bag
Camera, 17-85mm lens, dust clothes, lens cleaners, blower, pen/notepaper, filter kit and information about where I expect to be.
Feedback
This photograph was not what I intended to capture but I feel that it's better than what I expected and i got a great outcome.
