12th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Last Light Sierra Sunset

Sunset from Big Alkali Lake near Mammoth Lakes, very wind night with some storm clouds over the Sierra's. I was heading to Owen's River but decided to stop at Big Alkali Lake on the way. The sun's angle was still hitting the top of the mountain with the cloud's turning a nice shade of orange. Set up the shor with the rock in the foreground and tried to balance the clouds, mountains and the lake shoreline.
