Congratulations to Fred Miranda for winning Feature Thread of the Week with 17 votes - View Previous Winners


The colors came for a couple minutes and then disappeared behind the heavy clouds. I was able to set-up my Sony A7R and Samyang 14mm f/2.8 and capture this 2 second exposure. I was completely alone there.
By the time I tried shooting with other lenses, the colors were gone.

Very little post-processing.
Thanks for viewing,
Fred

Great title. It really looks like that when your focused on the lower section.
I like the darker tone to it, which really makes the "fire" stand out. Way to be ready when that 2 minute window of opportunity appeared.
I don't know if this would work, but try cropping about 25% of the sky off and see if that helps.
Beautiful capture,

Kelly

Hey Fred,

How cool is this! The darker salt flats are really working with that fire in the sky you got. Good job on getting this, sometimes 2 mins is all we get to shoot the color before it's gone, it's great you got this.

Works for me, neat texture and glow.

I've been known to photograph in the nude when alone. ( unless there's prickers )

Nice Fred! It's a good thing you were able to come away with a great photo from the short light show. Love the contrast in the bright colors above and dark colors below.

Lol Matt! That has to be the most random comment ever! If I ever see a naked guy in the middle of no where, I'll know who it is

That is great wish it were mine shot! I think I'll be exploring Badwater quite thoroughly when I head down in April.

Even in January? I guess DV would be the place to do it if there was a place...

Primeval.

No need to reach for the other lenses, the RokiBowYang worked just fine.

Great shot Fred! I really need to go down there, I love those geometric shapes the mud makes.

Just gorgeous and great timing. Great example of what a skilled hand can achieve with just a $2300 camera and a $ 400 lens!

Well, I guess now we know why you always carry a macro lens!

Very cool image. Like Jim mentioned, the cool salt flats contrasts so well against the fire in the sky.

Awesome Fred. The fiery horizon really stands out. Can't wait for your A7R review. How's it coming along?

Fred,
You almost have two subjects in this excellent image.
Hard to make that work unless one is a mirror of the other. IMO these DO, however, complement each other.
Well done- and spectacular.

It was definitely a gloomy day!
I actually went there without any hopes of capturing the dawn colors as the clouds were getting thicker by the minute.

Thanks for the feedback Kelly.
I kept the overall "low-key" tones to better describe what I saw that evening. It didn't last long but it was a beautiful light show.
