Sunset Clouds, Carmel Mission a.k.a. Mission San Carlos Borromeo del río Carmelo, Carmel, California by David Leland Hyde. I arrived at the Carmel Mission this trip less than half an hour before closing. By the time I got in, made a donation and started photographing I had 15 minutes to catch what I could of the Basilica interior and grounds of the Mission. I thought to myself that I could chose to get stressed out, cry, moan, complain, swear a lot, leave without trying or think of it as a photography exercise. Ok, 15 minutes, go… I was off. I made quick decisions and photographed the key subjects and most important angles. All in all a good exercise. More importantly, all of my images were strong with few throwaway frames between. A good exercise. Try it sometime.
