Last night I walked up Old Stage Road to about Barros' and waited for the sun to sink behind the Seven Sisters. At 6:15 the magic started happening as the desert floor started going dark and a sliver of light arced up the ridge to the south of Sugarloaf and lit up a lone adobe house at the top of Morningstar. Came back to the studio and took a second stab at the effect:
Still missing some of the grandeur of Sugarloaf, but the light on the adobe is about right. Got another one started this morning and will try and finish at lunch.
Big day in the office with visiting potentates and editorial demands.
