Location: Monument Valley USA

A rare moment when I predicted what would happen and set up the camera in anticipation of events. Everyone else was in there tents but beneath a somewhat leaden sky I saw a chink in the clouds at the horizon and realised that the sun must pass beneath and stream across the landscape. What I couldn't predict was the outrageous colour of the light and the effect it would have on the twin towers of the buttes in front of me. Truly blood red needless to say when others discovered what was happening there was a mad dash with the cameras but they were too late the show was over in less than a minute.

Awe-inspiring quality, Ian. To have captured detail throughout in the face of such extraordinarily lighting conditions is a remarkable achievement. And well done for anticipating these conditions!

Your Scottish training has stood you in good stead. A minute of good light is luxury in the highlands!
Beautiful shot, the colour is amazing.

Simon.

Excellent prediction, I bet it put a big smile on your face when you noticed you were the only one who caught it! I had the same happen to me on holiday recently - a Frenchman was waiting with his gear for what he obviously hoped was a spectacular sunset. When the sun disappeared behind a blanket of grey, he packed up and left, leaving me to shoot a wonderful sky and view in the other direction - one of the best shots I've taken in a long time.
I love the colours and the light - I love Monument Valley anyway, but I really like this capture of yours. Well done!

Conrad
