Epic Owens River Sunset by narmansk8 Epic Owens River Sunset by narmansk8
Taken at one of my "go to" spots along the Owens River. I had all but given up as the entire sky had turned grey I began packing up my camera when all of a sudden, within the blink of an eye, the entire sky turned blood red all around the valley. I scrambled to get my camera and composition re-set. What amazed me most was the red light that I was bathed in. I keep looking down at my hands while taking photos and was just baffled at how strong the red tones on my skin were. Was trully a surreal experience in light.

Owens River, Eastern Sierra, Ca.

Is it scary that I almost know to the foot where that shot was taken? Nice shot! One thing I do miss about Bishop is the amazing landscape opportunities.

The way that the light reflects off of the water is gorgoeous, absolutely magnificant. It shows that the best photographs are spontaneous.
