It was an overcast day as you can see from the sky when we were driving by this valley. I saw a slight opening in the sky and parked our car to watch the sunset.

Mist, thick clouds, the reflection of the sun on the river and the extremely saturated sunset all together made a very tricky situation for the right exposure. I underexposed the scene and also took a few more shots thinking I can get away with an HDR photo but at this particular photo I only used one single raw file and edited it on Lightroom and PS.

All I wanted is to retain the natural look of the scene and even though the hills were not the prettiest I have seen, the atmosphere was so good that I have decided to add it to my portfolio on 500px.

Hope that you liked it. Please hit like & fave. Leave a comment and I can also check your portfolio too.
