Hiker in the Alaska Basin Under Moonlight

Backpacker Resting Under Moonlight

Having another person along with me for the hike into the Alaska Basin was a little unusual. I typically do much of my hiking alone so having someone else nearby at all times got me a little inspired to try some new things. I’ve got several shots with her as the subject, including this one just before we called it a day. She was very cooperative with me as I experimented on a shooting a subject I don’t normally have the opportunity to do.

With the moon casting a halo in the clouds above, she participated quite well as she stayed still during this entire exposure. As beautiful as the Alaska Basin is during the day, there’s something very magical and peaceful about it at night.

  5. Very atmospheric: I hope it worked out well having a companion for a change?

  7. Thank you, sweffling! It worked out great! It was nice having someone so cooperative with me as I experimented and it was also nice to have someone else to talk to for a change other than myself 😉

  9. I like that dramatic scene in the picture. It is always nice to camp with company. Enjoying the scenic view with friends or family is more like a camping to me that being alone in the wilderness.

    1. Thank you, Belinda! It’s always nice when there’s someone there to share the experience with. Unfortunately with me though, it doesn’t always tend to work out. On the bright side though it makes me appreciate it more when there is someone there!
