Late Afternoon in Diablo Range, California

Posted by
Don Smith (California, United States) on 16 December 2015 in Landscape & Rural.

Late afternoon light created some really nice contrasts between highlight and shadow in the coastal hills yesterday. What's nice for us Californians is that the hills are already green thanks to our early El Nino rains! I used a 600mm lens to compress the sweeps of the hills and placed the lone oak in the upper left quadrant to serve as an anchor point.

REMINDER - B&H Photo is running a $120 off special today on my favorite monitor calibration unit - the i1Display Pro - would make a great early Christmas present - just saying! Without a properly calibrated monitor, your prints will never match what you see and your social media posts could display with varying tones and colors. It's so simple to calibrate, why wouldn't you want to do it? Takes 5 minutes every 2 months!
