New: An alpine sunset with colour and a bit of drama

An alpine sunset photograph from the archives. This photograph is from June last year and ran into it again when I was selecting photos to upload to my Google+ profile.

Colourful alpine sunset

A landscape in colour, featuring two mountains peaks at sunset against a vibrant blue sky as well as clouds and fog.

I remember that I went out when it was approaching sunset and that the weather was clearing a bit after a heavy summer thunderstorm. I got very wet but did end up with a series of nice sunset photographs like this one!

Cheers, Johan πŸ™‚

    I like this one Johan . The illuminated clouds by the peaks of the mountains are really nice one like the sky was trying to hug the mountains

          Lol Francis. I won’t be selling soon. There is some land for sale though πŸ™‚ These two mountains are a very nice subject to balance images like this. I use them regularly πŸ™‚

        yes, its different from where i live. We do have mountainous landscape here but its cool to see scenery and landscape which is so different from what we got here.

          Well, you should keep an eye then Nora! Plenty of scenery from the Alps in my portfolio πŸ™‚
          … I appreciate seeing the scenery from your island. Hope to see more in the future!

    Another evidence that you don’t need a fancy 10 billion dolar camera to make an amazing photo. To me this is absolutely gorgeous…especially the clouds on the left.

      Tnx Emilio! I also have an all singing and dancing one … not something you always want to lug up a mountain though πŸ™‚
