"Moonlight Falls"

Moonlight Falls, high in the eastern Sierra, flows through the lake basin below Picture Peak, one of the most photographed peaks in the John Muir Wilderness.  Although the falls are typically just a trickle by late summer, the large La Nina snowpack of 2011 provided more than enough water to keep the falls running at high volume, even in August.  Here, the falls are captured long after the sun has dissappeared from the sky, as the twilight hues of purple, magenta and deep blue illuminate the peak and surrounding basin.
