Owens River by dkproperties

“Owens River Alpenglow”
I took this image just after the leading edge of a thunderstorm had moved overhead from the East. The sun had just set and clouds were beginning to turn color, everything was building for a great shoot but the lightning and thunder began growing closer and intensifying, next the rain began to fall. I know many of you are familiar with Owens River area but for those who aren’t; it’s basically flat; very few trees, with foliage mainly around the river, in-other-words not a good place to be shooting with a tripod when rain and lightning are bearing down on you.
The color in the sky was incredible but even more spectacular was the alpenglow on the western mountains, but it was too dicey to remain, I took a handful of final images and ran like a Ninny, I mean Olympic sprinter back to my car.
