Day's end with a Blaze

Uploaded: June 03, 2003 09:17:28


Captured this amazing sunset using Nikon F100, AF-S 80-200 f/2.8 set at 135mm and f/11 on Fuji Provia 100F. Used 3-stop reverse ND graduated filter to hold back the intense light from the setting Sun as it dipped behind the mountains. Location is Great Salt Lake, UT. It was a beautiful sight !
