Lee Vining (CA), Mt. Gibb, Sunset, Changing Light

ISO100, 125mm, f/8, 1/40 sec
Whoa Nellie Deli, Lee Vining, CA

This photograph is similar to another photo recently posted.  So why have I done this you ask?  Well, if you look at the title of this post, “Changing Light” is part of it.  The scene here was what I had first encountered when I first arrived at the Whoa Nellie Deli in Lee Vining.

I was intrigued by the line of light created by the ridge on the right.  The light here is mostly yellow.  Yet 15 minutes later, the light has changed drastically to a pink hue: Lee Vining (CA), Sunset, Mt. Dana, Mt. Gibb, Snow

When you are out shooting during golden hour, it is important to remember the light changes.  There are times when it appears the “show” is over and sunset is done.  Then the alpenglow appears or the light finds a break in the clouds.  If you already make the effort to be out there shooting, another 15-20 minutes just might yield some unexpected shots.

EXIF data: Nikon D7000, center weighted metering mode, ISO 100, 20mm, f/13, 1/10 sec
