Along Empire Mine Road (Take 2)

Another sunny day, which is a nice change after the week of rain. I am not complaining as we need the rain. So I went back to Empire Mine Road to take the last set of photos with my 25mm (36mm FF) lens. I even made it out during the Golden Hour, sometimes referred to as the Magic Hour.

The first photo [#1] is about Oak Trees east of the Deer Valley and Empire Mine Road junction. The rest of the photos are taken about 1/2 mile west of the junction. Compared to Day 7, today Mount Diablo was visible.

All photos were taken with my Sony SLT α77 and Minolta AF 24mm F/2.8 lens, using Aperture mode, with a setting of f/11, White Balance set to sunny, ISO to 200 and 3-shot bracketing with +/- 0.5 EV. No post-process adjustments were made to the photos.
