This image took some patience and experimentation. Rain squalls swept over the pass as I waited for sunset. Fortunately, shortly after sunset the clouds thinned out behind this ridge line of the Dolomite Mountains, leaving magenta streaking the sky. As the light dimmed, I took numerous exposures to continually re-balance the tones in this high-contrast scene as best as possible. And I waited for cars to crest the pass and head down with their tail lights showing before the sky darkened too much. This was the best image I captured before night descended on the pass.
