El Capitan from Guadalupe Peak after Sunset 1
Guadalupe Mountains National Park
I’ve shot at this location above El Capitan in the Guadalupe Mountains several times, always hoping for good light at sunset. Here, while the vista looks south across the Chihuahuan Desert, the sunset in the west lights up the distant hills as well as the grand rock walls of El Capitan. From where I am, high atop Guadalupe Peak, the Lone Star State rests before me from this highest point in Texas.
