SIERRA NEVADA MOUNTAINS
LH8051 STRAWBERRY SUN
2013 August 22
6 PM: Smoke from California's Sierra Nevada "Rim Fire" near Yosemite has drifted northwest to Highway108 and Sonora Pass. The thick amber-colored haze dims and tints the sun a luminous strawberry color. Coincidentally, the small village of Strawberry is a few hundred yards from where this photo was taken, about 30 miles directly from the fire.
Nikkor 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6 telephoto zoom lens
ISO digital: 1600 / f/8
Exposure: 1/2000 second
