Just 2 weeks ago I saw an original print of this and the entire Museum Set for the first time. This was at the Lake County Museum in Wauconda, Illinois. I got to spend 3 hours rubbing my nose up against all 70 pictures and it was quite an experience for someone who has never seen any Adams original print in person. In Moonrise I was surprised by wisps of clouds, just barely visible around the moon, that never make it into reproductions.

I don't care what people say about his sentimentality and romanticism. It was a humbling experience to see this overview of an artists life work as re-visioned by the artist himself near the end of his life.
