While this image displays signs of sunset and seasonal transition, it also signifies a point in time where my growth as a photographer started to take off, and I began to take my photography seriously and educate myself with the visual art of photography as a whole. This image was captured in autumn of 2011, shortly after I started to dive into using manual mode on my DSLR at the time, which was a Canon Rebel T2i. I did not know anything about post processing really, or the camera settings required for shooting in various scenarios to obtain some of the end results I desired. I did not know what 75% of the controls and settings on the DSLR camera actually did. I have not processed this image until now, and have some more images to sort through from 2011.... This scene was captured in the Eastern Sierra Nevada foothills above Bishop California.
