Candle Lit Lake by PeterJCoskun Candle Lit Lake by PeterJCoskun
After driving all the way up to the grand canyon in the middle of the night with a friend of mine to make it there in time for some night shooting and a sunrise we decided to head back towards Phoenix taking a few detours. While we never got any great night shots nor a grand sunrise, just being up there is always a pleasure. After sunrise we headed towards Sedona and tried to figure out a good spot for sunset. We still had a few hours to spare until anything began to happen, so we drove around a bit to take in some of the fall foliage around town. Suddenly, an idea popped into my head. I knew I had to be at work at 4am the next day, so I didn't want to have to drive almost four hours from the canyon after sunset, nor two from Sedona. I remembered a place that was on my autumn location list, Watson Lake. Every now and then I see a decent image from here and have seen a few with golden fall colors scattered around. The clouds were shaping up for some possibly epic light conditions, so we stuck around until sunset. My buddy had went to the shoreline to scout out some compositions and I remembered seeing this tree while we were both down there. I figured I would head to the top of the lake to get an expansive view at sunset (which I did), but then when the light seemed to disappear I turned around and saw this fiery red sky. I immediately ran down to where my friend was shooting (a similar comp in which I had visioned) and we were both lucky enough to get a shot of this incredible light show. What was even more exciting for me was the golden tree sticking out so perfectly against the granite with the sky on fire. A perfect combination of light, season, and landscape. The lack of sleep from this shoot was sooo worth it.

Watson Lake- Arizona.
