This scene is captured at one of my all-time favorite places to see the sun set. This is along 68 to Santa Fe just south of Taos, New Mexico, US. The scene overlooks the lands of the new Rio Grande del Norte National Monument – an ancient landscape of volcanos, canyons, and incredible endless vistas of the sky. Something about the elevation adds a sparkling quality to sunsets, probably the thinner atmosphere at 7500+ feet, that pretty much ensures that no sunset will ever be boring. This image is also shot during the summer “fire season,” and distant fires in Los Alamos and Arizona are influencing the rich colors of sunset.

Note: Behind the photographer, this sunset was illuminating an incredible rainbow, which was also captured in HDR in two separate shots:

    Excellent and bold use of HDR – that tree just seems so three dimensional in its canopy. The light in this is magnificent:)

  • Thanks, morpheus71! I’m particularly happy how the texture of the tree’s bark came out so perfectly in this, despite the strong backlight. The wind was also light, so there isn’t much motion artifacting in the canopy.
