Roan Mountain sunset

Posted by
Harry (Apex, NC, United States) on 19 July 2017 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

There were dozens of people on top of the mountain waiting for the sunset. Many had cameras - everything from top of the line DSLRs to cell phones, though there were quite a few quality cameras on tripods,

SONY SLT-A77V 1/3 second F/16.0 ISO 200 135 mm (35mm equiv.)

Welcome to all. I began blogging Retained-Images in 2004 at It is gone now.
