I shot the same image the day before, but it was completely overcast and I never got a sunset. When I arrived the next day about an hour before sunset it was also overcast, and I was afraid I was going to get a repeat of the day before. Apparently, however, somewhere below the horizon there was a clear sky, and about ten minutes after sunset this caused a bright red glow to appear on the bottom side of the clouds.
You never know what is going to happen.

Classic sunburst sunset shot, nailed it! 😉 First time to see so much visitors plus a looooot of photographers with tripods lined up on the edges of the lookout point waiting for the sun to set. Amazing!!
We decided to check this place out again on a sunrise. Strange that we were the only ones there morning. Either this place is not known to be shot on sunrise or everybody’s still enjoying their beauty sleep. lol!
The 25% cloud cover forecast turned into 80% Woooot! So here’s something from that awesome morning, enjoy!

After shooting the photo “Morning View” in May this year, i began to plan the next one and decided to wait until october to get some mist like this in the morning. many tries and lots of sunrises later, i finally got the conditions i’ve been waiting for.
I decided to take the photo about 20min. before sunrise. luckily the sky was clear and the moon was alone on the sky and continued with some different shots as you might have seen earlier.
