Passage of Light

Passage of Light

In my entire 40 days in Patagonia, this probably was the only moment I witnessed this magic transition light at Laguna Capri, long after sunset on 24 April 2016.

Transition light is the most mysterious light condition, which usually occurs more than one hour before sunrise or after sunset, but not often to really illustrates its intrigued beauty.

During processing this image, I was amazed by Nikon D810's super capability for recovering so many subtle details from shadows and such nice noise control even if ISO reached to 3200.
