Brief Directions

From Highway 395, take Nevada 208 towards Smith Valley into the town of Wellington. Take a right on Hoye Canyon road approx 3-4 miles and park below the horn.

Notes

The water flowing through the stream is full this April. Probably due to the banner snow fall in the Sierras this year. Sunset seems the best for colors. I used 17mm on 5D with F/14. Composited about 6 images to get the Pnoramic effect and slight HDR. The Sky was from a previous visit. It took me 4 visits to get the images I needed.

Description

Sunset in Hoye Canyon, this is a short but dramatic desert canyon. Lots of rich mineral content with a beautiful stream flowing through it. A wide angle lens is necessary for this shot. I composited 6 different shots to get this one.
