Another one of my favorite hikes in Big Bend National Park is the trek up the Lost Mine trail to the top. The views from the top are spectacular and sunrise is the time to be there. This was the case when I photographed another Lost Mine Sunrise during my trip to Big Bend last month. I decided to sit on the edge of the cliff and photograph the wonderful sunrise. I tried to photograph the items near me including the small plant on the left and part of the ledge on the right. I finally got some clouds albeit not as interesting as it could be.
This image was taken with my Canon EOS 5DS using my Canon EF 16-35mm f/4 Lens set on 16mm. The camera was set on Manual mode with the aperture set at f/8, shutter speed at 1/20th of a second and the ISO set at 100. I used a tripod for stability and my Kirk Long Rail to avoid Parallax issues. This is a series of five images brought together in Lightroom and completed in Photoshop using Nik Color Efex Pro.
