Moonrise Over the Eastern Sierras | Photograph by Benjamin Kirsch
“On a summer night in the Eastern Sierra Nevada, a friend and I reached the crest of a 12,000-foot mountain pass as the sun was setting,” writes #YourShotPhotographer Benjamin Kirsch. “We found that the moon was rising in the distance, and it made us feel as if we were on another planet looking up at a distant planet.”
Today is the 50th anniversary of the moon landing, and to celebrate, we invited @usairforce Major General and @nasa astronaut Bill Anders to guest edit our assignment, “The Moon in Your Life.” To submit your best moon photo, to the link in our profile (www.natgeoyourshot.com). Submission deadline is July 25, 2019.
