A Western Sunset

Uploaded: August 17, 2008 06:56:32


I tried my best to chase sunset within Monument Valley, but never got the shot I wanted. I gave up and hit the road for home - when the evening sky suddenly burst into color. Pulled off to the side of the road and shot this image at 12mm with tripod and cable release.

Exif: F Number: 7.1, Exposure Bias Value: -1.67, ExposureTime: 1/25 seconds, Flash: did not fire, compulsory flash mode, ISO: 100, White balance: Auto white balance, FocalLength: 10.00 mm, Model: Canon EOS 30D
