Silver Divide Sunset

I was scouting out a cliff overlook and the perfect timing for thunder to happen happened. So I had to leave, it was either that or just stick my tripod straight into the air and wait for a bolt of lighting. I'll share something from that awesome canyon over look later.

 

Spent a couple of nights off the beaten path backpacking in the Eastern Sierra. Had some rain, thunder and lightning, you know the usual stuff in the Sierra at this time of year. I need a better rain poncho so I can fish longer in the rain. Did okay fishing w/ just a single bright dot fly. If anyone is up for bagging Russell in the next couple of weeks let me know!

 

For the processing (photo geek stuff), had to tame the red color channel quite a bit just get some of the other colors to show up. The blues were pretty much gone in the raw file but I brought them back with layers instead of painting them in lightroom.
