It is amazing to see how quickly the sun (or moon for that matter) moves through the sky when you have a little foreground perspective. The sun went from completely about the hill to this in less than 3 minutes. There is the phrase “where has the day gone”. After seeing how quickly the sun moves through the sky, it is almost a wonder as to how we even get as many hours in the day as we do.
Location Notes: A dividing line between the affluent cities of El Dorado Hills (in El Dorado County) and Folsom (in Sacramento County), this hill overlooks the Sacramento Valley to the west. This hillside and these towers have been a location of mine for previous after-work hikes and compositions. Sometimes the best locations to shoot are the locations that are the most readily available.
