We were hiking in the "Cerce" Valley , french alps .. in early autumn .. the weather was ominous and the colors very brown/red/yellow ..
I saw a piercing light beyond .. I ran towards the pass ( Col de la ponsonière ) And I had the chance to see this light amidst darkness ..

It just lasted 1 minute or 2 ... This is one of my favorite sight during my life .. revealing a very otherworldly , evocative landscape ... Just coming out from a dream.

I've used 1 or 2 ND grad filters and underexposed the scene , also increasing some contrasts .

thanks for your words ,
