Sunrise Over Alabama Hills and the Eastern Sierras

Posted by
Barbara Lee (Oakland, United States) on 21 February 2010 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

A panoramic view of sunrise over the Alabama Hills and the Eastern Sierras. This image was made on the same morning as the moonset photos earlier in this blog. It was truly a sky that just kept on giving and giving throughout the hour I was there with my camera. Sometimes we become truly blessed with great light, and I was so lucky to have been there.

NIKON D90 2/5 seconds F/16.0 ISO 200 72 mm (35mm equiv.)

There are some lovely landscapes you have captured. The quality of the light, those early morning beams and setting rays, is wonderful. Great work.

You really were blessed to have so many wonderful events over the span of an hour. Picture perfect as your images generally are, I like that you continued the panoramic approach. So much to see here.

I also like the panoramic view. The layers of form and layers of light are beautiful.
