Of course, everyone knows you’re not supposed to shoot the night skies when the moon’s full. That’s the Main Rule.
Yet, there I was. Although to my (very slight) credit, I was there one day after it was full. But when trips have to be scheduled around other things, and when night-sky photography isn’t the main reason for travel, sometimes you have to take what you can get. And what I got was a nice dead tree – on the edge of a cemetery, even – and a shy moon peaking out.
Of course we did – of course we made a day trip over to see Palouse Falls. It is the State Waterfall, after all, and is also among the last active waterfalls on the Ice Age floods path.
The park’s website notes that it is a “remote recreational experience.” The park’s website is not wrong.
