Photo and caption by Jason Zito
It was winter outside of Anchorage Alaska and we went up to Sewards Pass to do some Snowboarding. The moon began to rise across the city in a time where its not light, it's not dark, it's somewhere in between. It was too dark to handhold the camera and I was ill prepared and did not have a tripod with me. I knew I wanted THIS shot but the only resting surface for my camera was mounds of cold, wet snow. Not seeing that as a good option, I laid on the ground, dug my elbows into the snow, took a deep breath and slowly pressed the shutter. A few moments later I was graced with this shot.
