I have been asked by the mods to post my recent pics directly here instead of providing a link to my site, so they can be shared on other parts of the forum.So here it goes, the sunset pics from my last weekend. Location is Sandstone Peak trailhead parking lot and Balanced Rock off the  Mishe Mokwa trail, just 2 miles out of the said parking lot.

WOW!

How far outside of LA?  Maybe I can get my sister to take me there next time I visit?  I see not far from Thousand Oaks and she lives just outside to the east/south?

It depends on where you’re starting from. Google “sandstone peak trailhead” or “circle x ranch”, they are like half a mile apart from each other.

Absolutely, you ought to give it a shot. Try Shutterstock or Fotolia to name a couple.

Yes, commercial quality indeed.  With proper marketing, they can be sold.  I would look into watermarking your work as well.  Otherwise, someone else is going to sell them.  Look into stock photo agencies, chamber of commerce for the area, local businesses that would put up a poster size print.   Lots of data if you research it on marketing those incredible shots.   Yes, the lighting was crucial.  But, YOU were the photographer.

Looking more closely at the lower right corner, I see you are marking your photos.  I was distracted by the stunning color....  my bad.

No worries! Yeah, my corner stamp is rather subtle with the idea of it not being too much of a distraction.

Thank you for your suggestions and comments!

Beautiful Pics. I'm curious though,  as it seems like that whole area is marked as a NFZ in Airmap. How were you able to fly there?

Hmm, I wasn't aware of such NFZ. Sure, the whole thing was of limits when the fires were blazing, but not anymore. Below are the screenshots from DJI GO4 and B4UFly. According to them, I was safe to fly.
