This was a one of a kind photo. We had been blessed in the evening with a deluge to take the heat out of a stormy summer’s day, which we shall call a ‘stinker’. The rain had stopped, but the heat and the humidity were still quite high. As such, beautiful swirls of mist formed in the valley below. The world was grey, silver and white and the mist swirled and highlighted the shapes of all the spurs into the valley. Then just for the briefest of moments, the pink afterglow of the sunset was visible, just time enough or me to take maybe half a dozen frames before it subsided. Let’s admit I panicked getting camera, finding tripod, and determining exposure in quick time. However, once again as I always try to, I managed to get two individual shots to stitch together and this is the result. It might take another twenty-five years to repeat the lighting phenomena, so please enjoy.
