A spectacular sunset unfolds over the Bassiero crest, Pic Amitges and Agulles d'Amitges, high in the Aigüestortes National Park in the Catalan Pyrenees. The weather has been interesting for the most part with daily thunderstorms late in the afternoon and well into the evening, bringing hail and heavy rain onto the unwary hikers; but also meant that very rarely the storm broke before sunset due to the geological features of the Pyrenees and the weather patterns at the time. Persistence paid off on a few occasions, however and I feel truly fortunate having captured some of these brief moments.
