Photographing the full moon at Colchuck Lake

I went for an overnight backpacking trip to Colchuck Lake just outside Leavenworth. It was a full moon that night and I wanted to capture the moon rising above the Enchantments. Of course, the moon did not come up until almost 11:30 at night so it was a long day. After hiking up 7.5 miles then staying awake to shoot the moon, I went to bed around midnight only to have the wind pick up around 1 am and keep me wake the rest of the night.

Checkout the video and see the beauty the PNW holds.
