Thanks Bob! I was thinking the same with respect to heat. It was like a blast furnace. I planned on spending a few hours at the pinnacles then drive to the sierra for the night. Instead, I hiked up and around the pinnacles, momentarily resting in the shade of pinnacles, snaping a few shots, but really trying to find the best sunset location. If the sky was full of goegeous clouds, I would have used a super wide lens and been in the formations, but the boring sky led me to drive south, and go for a shot capturing little sky and as much of the scene as possible. By the time I was done, I was cooked, and drove home for a cold shower and AC. I wimped out, missed a day shooting in the mountains, and that doesn't happen too often, the heat was insane.
