Black and White - Rajesh Jyothiswaran

Stanley Lake

The Sawtooth Ridge and the tall McGowan and Elk Peaks do make an impressive sight any time of the day. But 24 hours before the Great American Eclipse after kicking myself for missing out on a glorious sunrise, I did what I could to scrape the bottom of the situation.

I stuck a NiSi 11 Stop Neutral Density Filter on my lens to take this long exposure. It is actually a three shot manual blend of three exposures at 10s, 20s and 30s. One of the few times a filter comes in handy to tame some harsh light.
