Last Stand by Nate-Zeman Last Stand by Nate-Zeman
To purchase this image as an exclusive limited edition print please visit my website @ WWW.NATEZEMAN.COM

A cold and gloomy summer evening is briefly interrupted by an intense ribbon of red sunset light. This evening was another lesson in never leaving too soon. I made the hike up to Mayflower Gulch as dark storm clouds loomed overhead. I suspected the sun had made its last appearance of the day. Just as I was contemplating packing up my gear and hiking back down, this beautiful red ribbon of light appeared across the mountain range. It only lasted a matter of minutes, but was one of the most unique light shows I've witnessed.

surprisingly yes. I actually haven't yet decided if I'm going to put it on my website or not yet, because I feel it looks so fake... Even though its 100% real

Tsubane Featured By Owner May 11, 2011
Well, if it's real, go ahead and put it up. Maybe include some other shots of the same spot for reference? Or if you took more than one picture of the lighting there, it would be harder to fake multiple shots so people would believe you more. :D

It's almost too awesome not to put up.

my mind just cant explain to itself how such a vibrant shade of red could be possible... but it sure is a beautiful scene =u=

(btw, why does the water look so smooth? was it the camera that made it look that way?)
