Moonrise has become an iconic photograph, still in high demand among collectors. Is its appeal the glowing moon and gravestones? The horizontal composition that echoes the Rule of Thirds? The expansive and raw landscape? I have to admit; I wasn't familiar with this image. I thought we'd be discussing "Moon and Half Dome", an image I've loved since I first visited Yosemite when I was ten.

But that's part of the fun of class, isn't it? Finding new things to love.
