Sunset on White Mountain, View from above Barcroft Station, California
In August (2011), I attended a workshop – \”Dark of the Night Star Photography\”. This was organized by the Pt. Reyes National Seashore Association and the instructors were the really good Harold Davis, Steven Christenson and Eric Harness. (Side Note: Check this interview I did with Harold Davis a while back – its an awesome read.)
On Day 2 of the workshop, we drove up to the Barcroft Research Station at 12500ft, and got a tour of the facility. After that we hiked up about 3/4th of a mile to a view point to see sunset on white mountain. I made it up there with difficult due to a bad case of altitude sickness.
We saw a spectacular sunset up there, and headed back down. As we were heading down back to our vehicles, thunder storms were playing in the sky opposite to us. This is the first photograph of lightning I have ever made.
