Notes

Promising late afternoon light and weather encouraged me to hunt for a perfect vantage point to capture sunset light on The Minarets. I looked at a satellite image in a mapping app on my iPhone to find a hilltop with a good view of the Minarets, then I found unpaved Forest Service roads to follow as close as possible to the summit. I arrived with moments to spare, so I had to run to the top of the ridge to find a wide enough opening through the trees to shoot through in time.

Description

The light of the setting sun often streams through the spires of The Minarets, in California's Eastern Sierra region near the town of Mammoth Lakes.
