Moonrise over Bodie, photo by Harold Davis. View this image larger.
As dusk turned to night, participants in the workshop organized by Lance Keimig—Finding Your Way in the Dark—waited for moonrise over Bodie. The workshop was organized to coincide with a full moon, and most of us waited, our tripods on full alert, on the small hill at the entrance to the Bodied State Park. Ghost town or not, some park employees live on site, which accounts for the lights in the house in the photo.
