Moonrise Over Arapahoe Basin / by Jon Paciaroni

One of my favorite drives is Colorado Hwy 6.  Currently it’s the highest highway in North America sitting at an elevation of 12,800 ft. It’s also the fault line of the Continental Divide.

I was lucky with this 6 minute exposure having two cars pass in opposite directions just minutes before the moon crested the horizon. Which would create a nasty lens flare and blown out the image.
