El Diablo

After Monday night's sky festivities, I did not think Tuesday would likewise deliver any sunset action. Miguel D was at the house for a visit and happened to have his camera in his car. When he arrived we commented on the absence of even a single cloud anywhere. Well, about 20 minutes before sunset we looked out the window and a surprise stratus bank had rolled in from the west so we hopped in the car and made for Marsh Creek Reservoir which is 8 minutes away. We got there as the sky was making its magic over Mount Diablo. Score!


This is a short pano using the A75mm f/2.8 on the 645Z. This happened after dark, so I kept the image fairly dark.
