Such a fragile area. Unfortunately this is quite a popular hiking spot so I had to wait for some rain to wash away all the footprints. With the sun setting earlier lately, I've been racing from work and full on sprinting to this spot every chance I could but no matter how fast I ran, I would always miss the sunset. Disappointed I would just walk around a four foot area perfecting my comp. On this particular evening, I of course show up late again but as I was cursing at the sky I noticed that the light became really really nice. The colors began to deepen and saturate and the moon started to brighten like a fluorescent bulb. All those times I was skunked and prepared my shot paid off as I calmly went to my little area and fired away. No frantic running around but stress-free and happy. It's a wonderful feeling when things just work out.
