_____Random Info

After quite a delay mostly due to band stuff and university I finally got around to editing one of the more complex shots from my recent trip to the Saxony Switzerland with JanPusdrowski. This has actually quite a funny back story. This very spot was brought to our attention by a wanderer who told us about it because we looked to her as if we were capable people and knew what we wanted from the sunset in store. So she send her daughter off the beaten path to show us this spot. But the best thing about this was, that during the last half an hour of sun a huge number of tourists were occupying the spot we had in mind previously which would've made shooting increasingly difficult. So she basically saved one of the more memorable sunsets I was able to shot until now. Really like the cloud formations diagonally extending from the sun and the gentle evening light illuminating the foreground.  Hope you like it as well. 

_____Edit Info

Whoa, another Daily Deviation, and just after I uploaded the shot. It's always a great honor to receive so much attention and gives me a warm and fuzzy feeling. Many thanks to lapis-lazuri for suggesting the shot and Anoya for featuring it. And of course thank you to all the people from whom I received critique!

Here is Jan's approach to the scenery: Treasure by JanPusdrowski

Great light, view, colors and composition!

Firstly, it's a really nice capture, and perfect timing!
The difference between yours and hers is that, yours is kinda bluish, and cold, which kinda fits to a sunrise, rather than a sunset, and hers is warm. And you ran straight into the sunlight, which hampered the sight of the meadows far behind a little, which she didn't.
I love how you captured the dark clouds and the sun light sipping through it, making it's way out from the darkness, before it finally gets dark. There's some kind of beautiful peace and quiet all over the place, your photo brings it out. It's sublime,colors are cool and charming, the sky is amazing. Overall, it's beautiful.
