Fiery Mountain Sunset

I was sitting in my car on the parking lot not going to photograph this evening at all as there was no any particular composition that would caught my eye, neither a proper light. I was going for a pre dawn early morning hike next morning, my camera and tripod were in the trunk and I was preparing to take a nap.

Suddenly, a few moments later, the light changed dramatically. The sky literally lighted up above the mountain in front of me. I quickly assembled all my stuff and ran a few feet away from my car to set the tripod.

Snap! Done!

Sometimes you just need to be lucky ;)
