Last Light on the Bear's Lodge

Bear's Lodge is an Indian name for what most of us know as Devils Tower.

Sometimes I do get to places just when God's ready to have somebody click the shutter. - Ansel Adams

It had been mostly overcast most of the evening. My wife and I had gone to this location in hopes that at sunset there might be some light sneak under the cloud cover. I had my rig sat up waiting. It was almost as God was saying, "Wait..., wait..., wait, now watch this." This light only lasted about 4 minutes at the most.

This is an 8 x 14 ft wall mural (29,625 x 52,705 pixels) made up of 70 individual shoots with a Canon R5, 300mm lens at f/11, 1/15th sec., ISO 100. Stitched using PTGui and final processing in Photoshop.

Wow! Nicely done! Is this that mountain featured in that move Close Encounters of the Third Kind?

The vision to be able to "see" the final image while taking a 70 shot composite is incredible to me! Great job!
