Cloud Passing - Alabama Hills, Lone Pine, California

Portfolio & Services


I did a few black and white images from my Eastern Sierra trip. As I was packing up after sunset, these clouds finally made their way over the landscape. The wind was blowing something fierce, so getting a 60 second exposure meant upping the ISO to 160 and using f8. Still, I was holding securely to the tripod. If you look close, there are a couple stars off to the right as this was during twilight. Press 'L' for the larger view or go here for the 1300 px version.


The sky heavy composition is something I try every once and awhile, but without a great amount of success. I like how this one turned out.


Thanks always for stopping by and visiting my stream. I appreciated it!
