Taking photos on the Earthquake Trail was quite challenging with the deep shadows and bright highlights from the late afternoon sun. Our eyes are capable of a balancing a wide latitude between shadows and highlights, but cameras have a much narrower range. So if you expose for the bright areas, the shadows come underexposed, but if you expose for the shadows, the bright areas get way overexposed.
