Sometimes, just when you think a sunset is going to be a colorless dud, something wonderful happens.
This time lapse was made at Mono Lake, looking northwest from the west shore, near Old Marina, on October 2, 2011. It was made with a Nikon D80 and Pclix intervalometer, shooting a frame every 2 seconds for about 25 minutes (with exposure and focus on manual to minimize flicker). The resulting image sequence (745 JPEGs) was opened in QuickTime Pro, saved as a .mov file, edited slightly, exported to .m4v, and uploaded to Vimeo.
