Sedona received a heavy snow in February 2009, that stayed on the ground for more than 1 day (which is unusual for Sedona). I had located a great spot to photograph the sunset on Thunder Mountain on a hill before Deadman's Pass. In fact I photographed the sunset previously with my CROWN GRAPHIC, but the results were only okay, not spectacular. After the snow fell, I took my 8x10 camera out and photographed the sun setting on Thunder Mountain. I exposed both slide and negative film; they both came out interesting. Thte negative film had more dramatic colors in the sky; the slide film had more saturated colors on the snow and mountains. All of the exposures came out good; howevver, the last exposures came out the best. I love the dramatic lighting and golden colors on the snow. The composition again is pretty centered; I am still debating if I want to crop the foreground and make the image more of a panorama.
I took these photos the day before my photo of the sunrise on a snow covered Coffeepot from Sugarloaf.
I took these photos with my Ebony SV810 camera and Schneider SUPER-SYMMAR XL 150mm f5.6 lens.
