Smith Rock State Park

Sunset at Smith Rock State Park.

This area is truly unbelievable and frankly it is difficult not to find a stunning composition every 50 paces or so. This one was shot two days before the total solar eclipse after doing a bit scouting for a wide-angle eclipse shot.

This was shot and composited from images taken at 3 different times of day:

Image 1: a few hours before the sun set to get nice lighting on the rock face

Image 2 f/22 in the last few minutes of the sun being visible for the sunstar and flare

Image 3: a few minutes after sunset when the sky came alive

Nikon D810
f/8 · ISO 64
