From the wide summit above the Barcroft Research Station, at about 13,200 feet, the workshop photographed sunset. The view was spectacular, stretching west to the Sierra crest, east to the great basins and ranges of Nevada, south along the White mountains, and north towards White Mountain Peak, shown here.

The “road” in this photo winds its way up White Mountain Peak, which at 14,232 feet is the third highest mountain in California.

This image is an extended range composite of six exposures. Each exposure was made at 18mm, f/13, and ISO 200 using a tripod. Shutter speeds ranged from 2.5 seconds to 1/125 of a second.
