The Layers Of Sunset

I shot this sunset outside of the small town of Elko, NV. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again….zoom or telephoto lenses will often make better landscape lenses than wide angle lenses. There’s no way I could have achieved the tonal recession in the image with a wide angle lens. I was using one of my favorite all around lenses, the Nikon 18-200 VR. If you are interested, I posted an image heavy review of this lens here.

Photographer’s Note: This is a single image processed using Lightroom 4.

  1. Love the layers in this Justin from the silhouette of the mountains to the colors of the sky.

  2. Recently there was a terrific series of layered sunsets on the Flickr blog. This reminds of those; beautiful shot.
