This chain of ponds is, what I think, considered Sailor Lake. If I am wrong please let me know. This is the type of sunset that I have been waiting months for and fortunately it happened on a backpacking trip in the Eastern Sierras.

Eastern Sierras, Ca

Amazing lighting, there really isn't anything I see that I would change except for maybe brightening up the middle of the shot.

As for composition, I'm not sure what should be done with that.

On one hand, I like the way the snow leads the eye down into the valley. On the other hand, I would really like to see more of that amazing sky!

I think a good compromise would have been to place the camera lower and angle it up more, with the result hopefully being that you still get the snow in the shot as well as more of the sky.

Although, that may just be a stylistic preference of mine.

Great shot, and for the record it definitely makes me jealous that you're getting to hike around in the Sierras!

Was this just taken last week? I was just on another hike out there and saw the clouds gathering beautifully in the morning as we were headed out from Rae Lakes. Looked like it would be a great sunset like this if they stuck around. Great shot, love your work.

The contrast between the cold blue snow and the warm red sky is great. Really different colours that make this shot interesting.
