p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Green River Overlook- Intense Sunset


Howdy Folks!

So many pictures to post, I'm on my last night here in Zion and have been skirting around Southern Utah parks for the last week and a half. It's been a crazy journey and I wish I could spend more time in each area but business calls and it's a quick trip.

These two images are from Green River Overlook in Canyonlands. After two days of grey skies and rain in Arches I had to move on to Canyonlands. Well I got lucky with this sunset, which for the two hours I staked out the spot looked like it was going to fizzle with the thick storm clouds overhead. But I waited it out and some photographers actually left after the sun had left the canyon floor. But about 20 minutes later the sky just exploded with color!

Anyway hope you like them, the wide angle was shot with my 24mm TS-E and my 6D. The other was shot with my 70-200 f/2.8 IS II and my 60D.

Happy shooting,

Andy

I envy you that wonderful sunset. Lucky you! So much terrific color--you could probably dial back on the saturation and have better balance in both of them. Compositionally, I prefer the second one (the first one looks rather centered), but both appear to have a leftward slant (perhaps an illusion?).

Nice shots and I've got to thank you for posting as I didn't know the name of this place. We stumbled across it on our road trip!

They look great on my I-pad, wouldn't change them.

Nice captures and perseverance!

You really lucked out with the passing storm. Clouds and light like that are 1 in 100...

On my monitor, they appear just a bit underexposed and a little oversaturated. Minor adjustments however, which don't change the captured image elements at all.

I really like #1 capturing the entire cloud and light. does seem a bit over saturated, but a beautiful nonetheless.

Fantastic shots. Both are great, but maybe #2 slightly more.

I really appreciate the feedback and kudos everyone.

As far as the over saturating, I just got home and I'm going to pull it up on my big monitor. Somehow my laptop became uncalibrated over the trip so it might be that.

Hey Andy,

What great light and clouds you had, super well done. I really like #1. For me, the saturation looks fine. Great job on both.
