Fire behind the Horizon

Sometimes the opposite site of the Sunset is even better than the Sunset itself.

Fire on the Horizon

Actually, this scene was not really opposite the Sunset, but more to the left. Nevertheless it was better than the Sunset itself, which was not that spectacular because of the dark band of clouds which you can see on these photos too.

About two weeks ago I have been once more on the Saualpe Mountain Range (links below) to view and photograph the Sunset. Most of the sky over the horizon was covered in dark clouds and the Sunset wasn't as interesting as this scene to the left of it. There the band of gray clouds left a gap on the horizon and the setting sun let the scene look like the horizon was on fire.

On the same evening I have also seen and photographed a Halo to the right of the Sunset, which I have already posted the day after I was there: Fighting Gods.

After a couple of minutes the clouds closed the gap and a few moments later they also covered the sun, even before she could hide behind the horizon anyway.

Today was a surprisingly quiet morning and no meetings were planned either. So I thought I could take advantage of the situation and make this short post, because who knows what the rest of the day would bring.
