259 photos merged into one image using the lighten layer-blending mode in photoshop. It looked like there was going to be a great sunset this night. It was pretty awesome, but I was struggling to get the best view of it. I set up here first, and as the colors started to change, I realized that there was a much better scene going on out of view of my camera. Once I got 259 photos, I moved the camera to catch the better part of the show, which didn't last long. I've found the best part of sunsets only last for 30 minutes to an hour at best.
