Bryce Canyon National Park, in Utah, is one of my favorites.
After an afternoon hike along the Queens Garden Trail and Navajo Loop, I set up my tripod at an overlook above the hoodoos, facing the anticipated location for the moonrise.
Even though the full moon was one day away, I figured there would still be ample goodness to enjoy. And there was :)
A few other photographers were set up, photographing the hoodoos at dusk. And then the moon appeared, just over the horizon, above the hoodoos. One photographer asked what I was photographing, since the light was better behind me. I smiled and pointed at the moon.
“HONEY. Get my telephoto lens. NOW!” are the only words I heard from him. His sweet wife went running to the car to grab his lens as he frantically set up to photograph the hoodoos and moon.
It was a comical moment and serves as a great memory :)
