Sierra Evening

Posted by

A fresh blanket of snow covers the west slope of the Sierra Nevada Mountains along Highway 88 just after sunset. This photograph is looking south along HWY 88 at about 7000' elevation.

Awesome with view with the subtle color shift from the greens in the foreground to the blues near the horizon with the snow "filters" Your pictures are great - I've been silently following your blog for awhile now!

Fantastic view of your Sierra Nevada (ours has not so dense forest). I like very much the composition and the shades of colors. Beautiful.

From the whites, through the pinks to lavenders ... such gorgeous colors and then a touch of green.
The clarity in this is terrific, Scott, all the way to the far distance, and not a soul in sight.
