Plenty bright enough sun (Exif @ 1/125, f11, 160 ISO) ... just not anywhere close to noon. Time of day is one hour before sunset, roughly 11 degrees altitude, 287 degrees azimuth.
The ridge runs mostly N-S, so it is in strong profile sidelighting, as the east face is only receiving its illumination from the sky, while the strata is the west face, so it is in full illumination from the sun (and sky).
+1 @ contrast of scene ... I was referring more to the strata being lit at an angle that rendered the strata flat looking to me. As to the shadow detail ... that was mostly my PP that caused it to block up, but I struggled to find a balance that generated the character of the strata along with the shadow detail. LIkely, I may need to "paint in" the strata, leaving the overall scene with less gamma.
I'm finding the amount of difference in the red component to be challenging to understand how to PP. The southwest sun seems to be rather different from other areas that I've encountered. I'll break out the sooc for comp.
