- Description: The evening was hazy and the clouds were setting in for the night over the mountain top. I knew the colors would explode soon. I was the only person at the overlook when a young couple (lost) pulled in to ask for directions, but they quickly forgot and took in the beauty. I gave them directions, but told them to wait because the sunset would last for thirty minutes. Puzzled, they hung around while I captured frames for my timelapse. As the setting sun starting to drop below the horizon it lit the underside of the clouds overhead. They thanked me at dusk, as I packed away my gear.
- Gear: Canon T2i 17-55
