In the past 4 days, I have stopped along the way home to shoot the last light over the rolling foothills for 2 of those days. Both days had clouds. The 2 days I did not shoot, no clouds. That is how it works. The intent was to shoot the unfiltered transition of the sunset glow to the blues of the night above. Well, there’s always tomorrow.
