Sunset over Martis Valley on Sunday, January 6th :: North Lake Tahoe, California

I spotted it as I turned right toward highway 267. It was the kind of sunset that makes you drive 75 in a 45, search frantically for a place to pull off the road, slam on the brakes, bust out the camera and then try to hold your breath to avoid camera shake (no time for the tripod) as you photograph the fleeting pink light intermingling with the low clouds. The landscape of greys provided perfect contrast to the fire in the sky, fire on the mountain. It was the ultimate farewell, my last sunset in Lake Tahoe before returning to Singapore.
