New on 500px : Sierra Sky by nevadax1 by nevadax1

The Sierra Nevada Mountains run for about 400 miles in western California with part in Nevada. In summer, the wildflowers are blooming in July at the higher elevations. I was lucky to witness this beautiful sunset a few days ago. I hope you like it too! Thanks for looking.

New on 500px : Sailor’s Delight by evanthomasphoto by evanthomasphoto

While watching this sunset , we couldn’t help but think of the ancient rhyme often used by sailors (“Red sky at night, sailor’s delight. Red sky at morning, sailor take warning”). We were camped right by Sailor Lake, after all. Turns out it was much to the delight of this night sky photographer, as well. While backpacking in to Sailor Lake, the skies were almost completely overcast. I gotta admit I was fretting a little bit about the possibility of backpacking in photography gear and not getting any pictures. But, it all worked out good in the end, because we were able to watch a nice sunset and the skies completely cleared by 10 PM when I was ready to start taking some night sky shots. This photo was taken near the outlet of Sailor Lake, right next to our campsite.

Taken deep into the backcountry of Area 51, aka Sequoia National Park. I was amazed at how still the water could be during a storm.

Thanks for looking!

New on 500px : Last Light on Clouds Rest by Darvin by Darvin

The last bit of light lands atop Clouds Rest in the distance with Half Dome still illuminated by the sunlight reflecting off the clouds above. Distant peaks on the horizon glow in the last bit of sunlight complementing the colors of the deep blue green forest. It’s hard to convey the wonder of this sight. Half Dome is massive and rises vertically above the canyon below. This view is taken from the cliffs of Glacier Point looking eastward. Just to the left off camera a 3000 foot straight drop to Yosemite Valley below. I have to say resting against a rock down in the trees gives a bit more feeling of security than does standing on the cliffs and offers some foreground that nicely frames the stunning High Sierra Nevada in the distance.

New on 500px : The Unforgettable Fire by nevadax1 by nevadax1

It’s hard to say which sunset is the most brilliant I’ve ever seen, but I would say this one over Lake Tahoe is certainly in the top three. This sunset was truly spectacular to witness. Fortunately, I had my camera with me. This photo needed virtually no post processing. The dark silhouettes of the granite boulders almost form a perfect frame around the red sky reflected in the calm lake. It will always be unforgettable to me. I hope you like it too.
