McDonnell Douglas DC-10 (N318FE)


This is the moment of exact sunrise over Reno Tahoe International. Behind me, the sun is just coming up over the crest of the Virginia Range Mountains east of the airport, so the sun is lighting up the upper floors of the Atlantis Casino; however, because it has not yet risen high enough, the bottom floors of the hotel casino, the RTIA grounds, and Fed Ex's "Annabel" (N318FE) are all still in shadow as the DC-10 taxies north toward the cargo area ramp after landing on runway 16R.

On mornings when there are no clouds in the eastern sky, this is always a wonderful three to four minutes of time. Three to four minutes is about all the time it takes for the scene to go from "full shadow" to "full sunshine," and capturing this particularly brief instant when the scene is "divided in half" between shadow and sunshine is always a challenge ... trying to get the settings just right so that the top doesn't come out too bright or the bottom doesn't come out too dark.
Less than two minutes earlier, I captured "Annabel" touching down on 16R .... and the entire scene in THAT snap is in full shadow because the sun was still just below the crest of the mountains behind me. Yet, by the time "Annabel" taxied past me here and was being marshaled into its ramp slot, the sun had come completely over the crest and in my next set of pics, clicked only 80 seconds after this series, the entire airport is fully bathed in morning sunshine. On cloudless evenings, the same thing happens in reverse as the sun drops below the crest of the Sierra Nevada.
