Eastside sunsets before the smoke
As I sit here in the smoky Eastern Sierra and write this post I long for the crisp fall days that I know are just round the corner. I also reminisce about those magnificent Eastside days we had this past Spring with eye popping sunsets and wild thunder storm filled skies.
Capturing photos was almost “easy” as each day brought a new scene to capture. From the Buttermilk to Mono Lake the sky seemed to be filled with colorful sunsets and fabulous clouds every evening. But Fall is coming . . . you can feel it.
These images were made on one of those evenings. I was hanging at some friends house in Swall Meadows with a deck that had a 180 degree view of Round Valley and the Bishop backcountry. This sunset stretched across the sky from the White Mountains in the east to the Wheeler Crest to the west. Pretty hard not to capture a nice image on this night.
