Just Add Color

Deep Horizons – Death Valley National Park 

Here is another shot from Death Valley. It was an early wake up call to be in position at Dante’s View before the sun came up that morning but it was totally worth it. The camera is incredibly sensitive to color, more so than the human eye, so the moments before the sun rises above the horizon are critical to capture these splashes of color in the clouds and mountains. Compositionally, the lines of the continually distant mountains invite a deeper look. Only simple edits for contrast and saturation were made in Adobe Lightroom 5. 

Thanks for viewing!
