Photographer's Note

I captured this sunset over the Painted Hills Unit from the beginning of the Overlook Trail Road. Peter B. had decided to climb to the top of the Carroll Rim Trail as I was capturing an image of a single hill within the valley beneath the Overlook Trail. Upon exiting the valley and seeing that the sun was going to emerge from beneath a tiny sliver of clouds that spanned the horizon, this was the scene that spread gold light across the Painted Hills and as far as one could see into the distance. The Carroll Rim Trail would offer one the entire region under sunrise or sunset with a wide perspective lens, no more than a 15mm to capture the entire range from near to far.
