Sugar Pines at Laurel Hill, NSW

I was reading a post on instagram this morning from an awesome landscape photographer about how they were working out whether they were going to make Sunset or not on a massive drive to get there. I wonder if all of us landscape photographers run into the same trouble sometimes...

...On this particular evening, I had to drive 3hrs to get here, and left late waiting for a camera battery to charge. Getting here about 30mins later than I would have liked, the Sun had dipped below the hill, but hadn't actually set. The light coming through was awesome, and such a peacefully quiet moment as the 2 of us were the only people there.

This is a 6 image stitch, shot with my Sony A99 and Zeiss 16-35 lens in portrait mode using a Novoflex portable multi-row Pano head on a Benro tripod. There's been a bit of dodge and burn with the light, I'll own that.

Well done! Love the colors! If you don't mind, I think the burning is a little to obvious in the top-right corner...
