Lipstick Sunset

As the sun slowly descended, soft yellow and orange hues blanketed the landscape. When it finally began to dip below the mountains to the west, vibrant pinks and reds were reflected in the clouds and peaks. An extraordinary sunset, all thanks to unsettled weather moving through the area before, during, and after the shoot.

Technical Details

Nikon Z7II, 44mm, 1/5sec, f11, iso400

Processed in Lightroom and Photoshop. The sunset was incredibly brilliant but it was difficult to recreate the scene without having it look over-processed. This is the final version…for now.


Beautiful image, Anna. It feels almost like a watercolor. Beautiful. Thanks for sharing.

Thank you!
