Lit Cloud Over Whitney Arch

Posted by
Don Smith (California, United States) on 12 October 2008 in Landscape & Rural.

Pre-dawn light paints the edge of a cloud above the Whitney Arch in the Alabama Hills near Lone Pine, California. I took an extremely low perspective to ensure the lit cloud could be seen through the opening of the arch. I then converted two Raws - one for the cloud and one for the arch - and combined them in Photoshop CS3 utilizing layers and masks.
