Nigel:

On my one visit to MV we arrived late on a cloudy day to stay at the on-site hotel. As I set up the tripod the clouds cleared to allow a nice sunset and I shot away. Without realizing it we arrived on one of those few days where the shadow falls on the other Mitten. it was a beautiful and completely lucky surprise.

I really like your angle on this and the cropping. And well done for getting a great sky in the background too.

Makes me want to go back

Cheers

Hi Nigel,

What a really cool shot you got here. I like it.

It's funny, like Wembley I had kind of lucked into the mitten shadow. As a matter of fact I didn't even remember shooting it until going back through some old MV shots I saw that low and behold I had the shadow on the mitten... sheesh... I didn't even remember shooting it... So I guess if you can't be good... be lucky!

Beautiful shot--you put all the elements together very well on this. Composition, color, sky, processing. Well done.

Great capture. I was in Blanding, UT last September when someone reminded us on this forum of the upcoming shadow mid-month. I drove to MV on 9/13 to see the event. In my case, the sun went behind a cloud as it was nearing the critical point. Just in time, the sun broke through and gave us the shadow. It was a neat experience.

Aside from the great composition, and processing. The amount of detail, and sharpness is fantastic for a shot of this distance. You are quite the photographer.

Very nice - the colorful background sky really highlights the mittens, and the timing to catch that shadow was very fortunate.
