Sunset on the Oquirrh Mountains

Driving home the other night, I caught this shot of the sun setting across the Salt Lake Valley behind the Oquirrh Mountains. The nicest thing about this shot is that it hides the usually visible devastation of nature and life caused on these mountains by the deepest open-pit mine in the world, Rio Tinto’s Bingham Canyon copper mine.

Nikon D300, ISO 200, 1/45 sec. at f/13, Nikkor 35mm
