Late afternoon light over rocky ridge

Sometimes it pays to stay in the mountains a little bit longer. We never know what the sunset light will bring us. Most of the times you will get nothing. But on a few enchanted moments, nature graces us with her exquisite kaleidoscope. After the shoot I had to run down the hill, 'cause the park gate, down in the valley, was closing for night time.
