This is the original, unedited photo. Maybe it was the heavy fog last night--or the haste to get the picture, as the moon only peaked from behind the clouds for less than a minute--that resulted in an impressionistic look. Either way, hard sayin'. But then again, it is Painted Post, after all.
There will come a someday —upon climbing this mountain-- when one more time will be one last time —becoming a ghost amongst the hemlocks. But in the meantime, what a strangely wonderful moon out tonight.
