My sister Katie graduated from BYU-Idaho last Friday night (18th), which also happened to be the night of the full moon. I took advantage of the drive home by stopping by the dam on Palisades and taking a few photos. My sister was with me and it was late (after midnight) so I wasn’t able to stay as long as I would have liked to have and gotten the exposures I wanted, but it was still fun to take a few moonlight photos. Photos were taken between midnight and One o’clock with an Olympus E-3 DSLR. The shots are around a eight to fifteen minute exposures. Moonlight photography is something that really needs a lot of practice to know what the proper exposures should be, so if you are interested in it my best advise is just get a good tripod and get out and practice.
Last Friday and Saturday I was able to go camping up Caribou Mountain with some of local church kids and leaders. I was asked to go because the main point of the activity was to go on a dirt-bike ride, and I know the area we went to very well. It was the first time I had been up there this year; the area fascinates me both because of the beauty and the historical importance of the old gold mine ghost town. It was also fun being with my little bro and friends. Update: Carson also wrote a write-up on the ride; if you want more information feel free to check it out here.
