The best sunset I've seen in years. Taken last night on the shores of the Great Salt Lake, Utah. There was a smoky haze in the air from local wildfires that softened the light so even the brightest highlights weren't blown out. Sunsets this good are hard to predict, but as a photographer it doesn't get much better than this. I hope you like it!

Perfectly tugged away and sheltered from the ever apparent winds during sunset, sits this little tarn in the Estany D'Amitges area of the park, enjoying the sweeping view and huge drops with a few selected people, marmots and chamois. In the distance, the peaks of Els Encantats and Subenoix (correct me if I'm wrong) loom over the Sant Maurici valley.

_____Random Info This is one of the many yet unprocessed shots from my trip to the Alps with SvenMueller last summer. I took quite a few different compositions of Lac de Chesery and still haven't gotten around to edit all of them. This is probably the earliest shot that I've done even before the Alpenglow set in and the mountain range was barely visible. Thanks to the 1 minute exposure though it looks very nice and tranquil even though it also resulted in some visible noise for I shot without noise reduction in order not to lose any time in between shots. It's also one of the rather dark exposures but I just like it that way because it still have some resemblance to the actual gloom which hung on the south side of the Aiguilles Rouge.
It was a blast standing there eating some chocolate cookies for breakfast while waiting for the different exposures to finish.
