Encore by PeterJCoskun Encore by PeterJCoskun
I really try not to photograph the same place twice in a week, but the skies rolled in finally after a few days of bland blue sky. The clouds came in so fast I was convinced it was just going to rain and I would get soaked. There I was, once again, in a position to scramble like an egg to find a comp when the light just exploded. I was almost back to the trailhead when I noticed this prickly pear cactus out of the corner of my eye and then the light over the mountains. I ran to the cactus getting my fair share of battle wounds and hitchhikers attached to my legs and set the tripod up quickly before the light faded. After I clicked the shutter and saw the result I decided that was it. I turned around only to find another amazing light display which I frantically ran around looking for a good foreground subject. I got something, but don't know how I feel on it. This was the shot of the day, and I left with a happy heart. Just to point out once again, this is really what this scene looked like, straight out of the camera with the raw processing. Another lesson in looking for a decent comp with little time.
