Sony A7R2

Post-processing Details:

Two images stitched to make a panorama of the extremely elongated cloud.

Image Details:

Lenticular Clouds, from San Cristobal over the Sangre De Cristo Mountains of New Mexico. I photographed these clouds earlier yesterday in broad daylight. They were beautiful but I couldn’t capture the fluid motion I felt when looking at them. I made this image from our driveway after the sun was well and truly set and used a longer exposure to show the movement, with the last light causing them to glow this way.
