Dusty Desert Sunset
Lens: D FA* 70-200 f/2.8 ED DC AW Camera: K-1 Photo Location: Yuma, AZ, USA ISO: 200 Shutter Speed: 1/125s Aperture: F5.6 
Posted By: AZGMDale, 04-29-2018, 09:13 PM

Taken handheld in a hurry. Was driving home from a busted full moonrise location because of high winds, dust, and clouds when I looked to my right and saw the sun setting over these layers through the dust. Stopped along the road, changed lenses, rushed to a high spot, and shot several frames before the sun was gone. Got lucky.

Thank you. I just wish I had time to set up the tripod so I could get the foreground in focus.

This one's a real wall-hanger. Very well composed, and I love the layering as the ridges retreat off into the distance. Bravo!

Well done.

This is a great example why it's important to scan your surroundings. A failed moonrise photo became a great sunset.

Thank you Ted. Have been by this spot many times at sunset, but the dust made this shot possible.
