A full moon illuminates the Loon Creek camping area and rafts tied up along the Middle Fork of the Salmon River in Idaho. We were blessed to share this gorgeous place with a herd of about two dozen elk and zero other humans. I do so love wilderness raft expeditions.
Photography Tip: Moonlight is magical. The nights around a full moon are a wonderfully rewarding time to go out shooting. My advice though is to try to find your composition before it gets dark. Find your subject; set up the camera, and set your focus before it gets dark then relax and wait for the moon to rise.
