Light Of The Setting Sun


Captured along the Alpine high in the Colorado Rockies, the light was pretty crazy with the smell of rain in the air and the distant rumble of the incoming thunderstorm at sunset. It was hard to try and capture the dynamic range in this, but I tried my best. I hope you all like it!
