Surprize Ending

Yosemite, Calfiornia

My camera and tripod over my shoulder, I was ready to give up on seeing a colorful sunset. Only disappointing gray, gray, gray behind Yosemite's most
recognizable icons. But as we photographers know, you'd better wait to the end, for Mother Nature often toys with us. Our reward for patience and
perserverance was this last moment flash of color. You could hear a gasp of joy from those of us who waited until the very last glorious moment.

A masterpiece, very impressive, Sandi! V

So true. Some of the best color often comes 20 minutes or more after the actual sunset.

Know the story - got the Tee-shirt! Sunsets here can be 45 minutes of gray and a sudden two minutes that will patch a bad divorce back together ;-) Beautiful work and PoV Sandi. g

A fantastic shot, and a great reward for your patience - persistance is so often the key with landscapes. Just stay a little bit longer, even if all looks lost, and you may well be rewarded! You can almost smell the approach of winter in this one (and the gallery as a whole).
