This is an exposure blend from a stand and shoot capture of one bracketed sequence. It is a tad soft, due to high wind and no tripod use (kicking myself in the ass). This is the only capture that I took zoomed in like this. The other three captures were zoomed out, and did not have it compositionally. I was enroute to Winnemucca Lake during an approaching snow storm on 11-15-15, when I turned my head and saw the storm coming over the mountain range and descending, so I turned off as soon as I could, grabbed a few captures of this scene, then eagerly got in the car to get to my destination. At the bottom right hand corner of the frame are two smaller tufa towers. On the shoreline where the ‘S’ curve is, there are trucks parked there (pretty small to see), and about 15 fishermen are in the water trying to get their catch in the storm. I wasn’t the only one who enjoys being a part of this kind of weather, and I did not notice the fisherman until I opened up this image in PS. I honestly did not think this would be a good capture, but it probably ended up the winner of this outing.
