Surprise Sunset by MichaelBandy

I took this one Friday night after meeting up with a bunch of fellow West Coast Photographers (FB photo group). My buddy Jojo had assured me we would have an awesome sunset, but as we all lined up and positioned our tripods for our selective comps it wasn’t looking great. The sun had dipped below the mountains for quite some time and the light was fading. We were just about to admit defeat when we noticed a slight bit of color on the horizon. In the next 10-15 minutes the color seemed to just keep getting better and better while we all shot away. It was a great moment and we all felt luck to have been there.

Finding a good comp at Mono Lake comes easy for some. For me it is a struggle. I am not sure why. I think the shear quantity of options causes me to lock up a bit and as I settled on this spot, I knew there were probably better spots elsewhere. None the less, I am pretty happy with how it turned out and I had a great time shooting a great sunset with a great group of people! I am looking forward to the next time!
