“It is very rare to convince friends to hike at night in search of a photograph. Especially when the hike involves Mt. Washington. Fellow photographer Jessie Briggs and I began our early evening ascent during summer solstice in June of 2013. Our destination was the crest of Lion Head, offering a beautiful view of Tuckerman Ravine and the summit of Mt. Washington. This panoramic image was photographed using 13 shots. It was quite difficult to capture this particular image due to the unforgiving 30 mph plus headwind.  I also had to be very quick with the moon setting over Tuckerman Ravine, not to mention the giant moon halo. With a firm grasp on the tripod, I fired away 13, 30-second exposures and stitched them together to create this panoramic image.” - Christopher Georgia.
