Photohunt: Black


Photohunt black

This week's Photohunt theme is black. It was kinda a challenge. The photo above was taken on a late evening hike to Burroughs Mountain at Mount Rainier. Our tradition is to hike up late in the afternoon on our anniversary and watch the sun set. We hike back as the day 'fades to black'. This shot was taken shortly after we were leaving of the moon rising over Little Tahoma on the eastern slope of Mt. Rainier.

Digging around I found a few photos in the black of the night with the moon. The first one is of the eclipse of the moon in February 2008. The following two are of a winter bonfire at Richmond Beach.

Fantastic shot of the moon. I'm jealous. I can never get a good one.
