The American Monument Sunset
I took these images on the the same evening as I did a long exposure of The American Monument catching the cloud movement however my intentions were to catch The American Monument Sunset which I almost missed because as I was walking back from taking shots from the other side of The American Monument I noticed the clouds were looking good for a long exposure so I decided to do an 8 minute and then a 16 minute exposure, however I cut short the 16 minute shot as the sun was getting too low and I still had to sprint round to where I wanted to take these images from, but luckily I got there on time.
I shot the first image to silhouette The American Monument and shot the second in HDR just to reveal some of the cliff. At first I preferred the silhouette but now the HDR image is growing on me, hmm not sure now!
