Rocky Mountain National Park is a wonderland of natural features experienced by tourists worldwide. Long’s Peak viewed across Bear Lake is one of the iconic views in the park. I arrived at my shooting location shortly after midnight to overcast skies when clear skies were forecast. But I set up my gear and waited patiently for the uncooperative sky to clear in the frosty March night. Just when I was getting ready to pack up and leave nearing the end of night without any photos, the sky opened up with the moon low on the horizon and I created this idyllic moonlit scene. A few minutes later, the overcast skies returned and the scene had vanished as quickly as it appeared.
