I always hate it when i get the feeling that i should be out shooting because if i don’t then i while miss something truly spectacular. A couple nights ago while eating dinner i had that very feeling. The sky’s at the time were just socked in grey but right around six one section opened up as the clouds moved south-east and the light struck the Sherwin’s. Boy was i kicking myself then.
I grabbed the 24-70 and 200-400 and went out onto to the deck and started blasting. The light was just incredible on the clouds in front of me and on the mountains in the distance. I honestly can’t remember seeing a sunset that good in the Sierra’s before then, but that could be more of a reflection of my memory then the actual sky’s. There wasn’t even anything in post that i wanted to do, except remove two annoying dust spots.
