Moon rise over Inside Passage

I was taking a short cut to the theatre by walking the open deck the last night of my shows. The crescent moon was just rising over the mountains. It literally took my breath away. I knew I couldn't stay and watch for long being on a schedule and the moment itself would be gone soon. All I had was my cell phone camera. I wish I had a much better way to preserve the moment. Ultimately there is no way to record it, you just have to be there. It seemed much bigger as I remember it now. It was surreal, like being part of a postcard for a moment.
I was thinking, before we carried cameras, we had to remember the details of a moment like this and if we shared it, we would use words. Perhaps better words could capture the moment more accurately than this shot. Maybe I need to carry a journal in my pocket.
As you were,
