Sunset over the Guadalupe Mountains

with 13 comments


Not long after we’d left El Capitán and the sumacs behind us on November 9th last year, I glimpsed colors in my rear-view mirror that were not only brighter than those of fall foliage but also more ephemeral. I pulled over, put a long lens on the camera, and took pictures looking back while the light lasted. Notice how the stray illuminated cloud in the upper left partly counterbalances the dark profile of the Guadalupe Mountains at the lower right.
