Description

After a day of cloudy skies we were fortunate to have received a break in the horizon about a half hour before sunset. We grabbed our gear and headed for a location that would offer the best possibilities. After the sun broke free of the cloud cover, an incredible shade of 'golden light' appeared and lit up everything it touched. The Temple of the Moon along with the fore ground matter took on colors and hues rarely seen except following stormy weather.
