The area is located 53 miles south of Carlsbad, NM and 99 miles east of El Paso, TX. This image was taken off of highway 62/180 just south of Guadalupe Pass as the highway turns west towards El Paso.
Exposure: 55mm, ISO 100, 1/2 sec at f/22.
A November 2013 sunset image of El Capitan and Guadalupe Peak located at the southern point of the Guadalupe Mountains National Park, Texas. The light and scattered cloud banks moving across the scene provided beautiful shadowing for the mountain range as well as nicely highlighting the ridge lines. I also liked the boulders in the foreground which provide a diagonal line moving up and out to the right of the scene.
