Last Light of the Day

Here's a study from a photo I took many years ago while driving up around Flagstaff, AZ. The overall scene and photo were quite dark so I'm not sure that I was able to capture the original light. I have some other photos taken from this same spot. I may refer back to some of those and see if I need to make some adjustments.

Trail to the Summit

On a recent trip to the Eastern Sierras, I found this view from the bottom of the final rise of a trail that ended on the crest of a ridge. I think what caught my eye was the contrast between the bright, sunlit areas and the deep, dark shadows.

First Light on Upper Twin Lake

Here's a study of a popular lake near Mammoths Lakes, CA. I guess I was in another green mood today.
