Dugway Rd. in Albany, NH to Moat Mountain Trailhead.
3 exposures to control dynamic range: 1 for the land exposure and hiker, 1 for the sky highlights, one for the land with direct lens flare eliminated by placing my finger over the sun to preserve contrast and detail in lower portions of the image.
The title pretty much sums it up. This is why photographers and outdoor enthusiasts seek out mountain environments for inspiration. Lighting and composition came together during this moment atop Moat Mountain. I thought including the hiker spoke more to the experience we all seek out in the mountains.
