This is a shot I should have done differently. Should have used a grad ND or bracketed my shots. Should have used a greater DOF than 7.1 and set up on a tripod. Should have watched out more intently for rattlesnakes while hiking around. However, sometimes life is about being spontaneous. Sometimes you run up a hill and hand hold a shot at the incorrect aperture while dodging rattlesnakes just so you can capture an "O.K." shot of an astonishing sunset. Thank God for Canon's image stabilization.
