Moonrise Over Baileys Harbor
Photo by Tim Erskine
I got up in the dark well before dawn in order to get into position on the beach south of Baileys Harbor before the moon rose. I needed a headlight to scramble through the dark cedar trees and scramble down the shallow rocky ledges leading to the waterside.

I snapped this photo at 5:56AM on October 6, 2010.
About an hour later the sun rose on a brand new day...
