Capolungo, Genova, Italy. That evening I went out for taking the sunset. I was standing on the Nervi's promenade. The weather was something wonderful: sunny winter afternoon, a clouds streak on the sealine to the south and others like whipped cream above the hills. I went on the beach and in a short time came the moment of sunset, a magnificent sight that I could enjoy sitting on the rocks.

About a half hour after sundown, weather suddenly changed; the clouds above the promontory of Portofino began to shine, as fuzzy light gashes of light in a majest november sky. It was something majestic, unique show! I put my reflex on a brick wall of the rock because I didn't have a tripod. Set the brightest diaphragm aperture that could give me my Nikkor 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR lens at 18 mm focal length: I chose f/3.5 with an exposure time of 4 seconds. The result is here.
