The Milky Way and Three Fingered Jack from my amazing campsite in Canyon Creek Meadows. As the moon began to rise it lit up Three Fingered Jack, adding some amazing detail to this already beautiful night scene. It's a tricky balance exposing the Milky Way as the moon comes out. The higher the moon gets the dimmer the Milky Way becomes so this type of shot is best taken right around moonrise or moonset.
