Gift of light by PeterJCoskun Gift of light by PeterJCoskun
Some of the craziest light I've seen on a mountain. And yes, they were really that red. My camera picked up too much of the red and went going crazy, blended two exposures and brought out the cacti. I have plenty of images from this area, but none of that light even rivals what was scene this evening. This wasn't even the best of it, that will be coming in my next post, but if you follow me on facebook and or 500px then you have already seen it.

Mcdowell mountains- Arizona

Whoa, looks surreal... If I didn't know it's a photo, I would think it's CG with plants from Mars. :XD:
This light is great. Shot is amazing, GJ :D

Seems underexposed by half a stop, though. It's not like anything would get blown out..

I purposely underexposed this to emphasize the reds in the mountain.

I love the different textures in this photo. There are some very interesting color contrasts in this picture too (The dark ground, the light orange mountains). Really awesome!

There are some challenging trails especially to some of the summits, the one to the lit peak isn't too difficult it's fairly gradual. But a lot of the beauty is beneath the mountains themselves, thus I rarely hike to the tops.

I will still concur it! but I do agree with you that the beauty is on the bottom.

It's not as popular as a place like the superstitions so your likely to find something nobody has really photographed.

and that is where the true beauty reclines.
