    While chasing through shots I took in 2019 for the Best Of thread I came across one of the sunrise shots from last spring in the Alabama Hills that I had not processed and decided to give it a shot. My intent was to get images that emphasized the unique shapes of the granite boulders in the Alabama Hills with the Sierra as a backdrop and not necessarily the Sierra peaks as the subject.


    C&C always welcome.

    Nicely done Alan. You had a great cloud show to complement as well.

    This would work great in a slide show zooming into the distant sunlit peaks.

    This is for sure a very nice one Alan. The clouds add such a great touch to this.

    Beautiful! Nice lighting. I do like the contrast between the rock formation and the mountains.
