Cap Rock Sunset

This is another photograph from my recent trip to Joshua Tree National Park to attend a night photography workshop. Once the workshop was over I headed out to the park to photograph the sunset. The forecast was for great clouds and it did not disappoint. I headed to the Cap Rock area, the same place where I took the photograph that I posted a few days ago. Photographing the Cap Rock sunset was amazing. The skies kept building and the colors more intense. This is one of my favorite photographs from my trip.

This image was taken with my Canon EOS 5DS using my Canon EF 16-35mm f/4 Lens set on 31mm. The camera was set on Manual mode with the aperture set at f/16, shutter speed at 1 second and the ISO set at 100. I used a tripod for stability. This is a series of three bracketed images (-1, 0, +1) brought together into a single image using Lightroom’s HDR feature. I then completed the image in Photoshop using Nik Color Efex Pro.
