The sunset was very very beautiful! I waited months for a moment like this one! I been wanting to go back to Sahale for a long time! It was an exting time, there were sunbeams, and slowly there were sunset colors until the sky had a explosion of color. Then came a magnificent evening. I love how the mountains always have this effect. Sahale never fails to impress me! I used auto exposure to capture this, because I did not know much about exposure back then. My friend Mark Straub who was with me rushed me, but I was lucky enough to get two photos in of this panorama. I wanted to stay, but as always, I end up having to leave the places I love, but then return. About the photos: The left part of this photo originally had a blueish effect, and was diffrent from the other side, which is what made making this panorama difficult. At first this panorama was wierd looking becasue one side had a blueish look, so after spending lots of time fixing up the panorama, I decided why not use the warm effect to fix it. To my luck it worked with great success! I then resized it and cropped it a little so that it could qualify of being a panorama, and then posted this onto Treknature.

Your images entrance me. Panorama view in this size and using a technique that Goldy uses perhaps without knowing or thinking it was even a technique...it is a fine image of genuine quality and considering where and what short years in this world of which you came, yet the view remained for thousands of years before...only this one is special!

Hi Joshua!

It's always a pleasure to read your notes, they are full of enthusiasm and love for nature and the mountains. The picture also reflects this. It's a delightful panoramic sunset, it invites for contemplation and meditation.

Thank you for this!

Kind regards Markus

N.B.: Why did you want to take away the blueish effect? It occurs under special light conditions, and mountains often appear with that blueish cast. There's nothing bad about it. It also my be the result of the camera settings concerning the white balance. If your camera is set to daylight and you take a picture in darker conditions, the blue cast may occur.

What colours! Your shots never fail to impress me!
Wonderful atmosphere.
Superb exposure.

Stunning work, Josh!

Cheers mate,

you got some good colors, I also like the layers of mountains and the depth with them, the further back the lighter they become, with a little practice you can get the exposures where you can have detail in the closer mountains

Hey Josh!Sup!
Bob knows I know nothin about the technical stuff, but he's egged me on for almost my entire tenure here at TN...
Yea, I'd have done the same thing as well, and I really love the silhouettes of the hills that aree so sharp!
Very well done buddy!
