Description

When I arrived at the small parking area for Valley View, the earlier storm was rapidly dissipating. The rain had almost stopped, and the clouds above this view were moving across the sky in a hurry. I was in such a rush to set up and capture the scene that I accidentally pulled out a hard stop ND grad filter, instead of a much preferred soft edge filter. By the time I realized my error, the sky was almost completely clear. Back home I processed this image to maintain a fairly even and consistent exposure, and retain as much detail as possible throughout the scene. I would be the first to admit that technically this image is not perfect; however it sure was a dramatic scene, and one I felt privileged to photograph.
