If you view this on black, we can be best friends.

It's safe to say this was in the top three sunsets I've ever seen. This lenticular array of clouds perfectly filled the sky as the light of the day faded. The warm and unstable weather in Oregon this summer has yielded some very interesting natural events.

I was practically peeing my pants in awe, and involuntarily saying "oh my God" as this scene unfolded. People most certainly thought I was crazy.

The title of the image comes from two things: The fact that I've been listening to trance quite a bit lately. I often do when editing photos. And second, the way I felt that night. Completely in a trance -- awe of nature.

Thanks to Ted Gore, Michael Shainblum, Andreas Resch and Brian Adelberg for the valuable feedback!
