Sometimes you can see that the sunset is going to be great, even a few hours before it happens. This was one of those evenings. I had been visiting a person who was dying. When I came out of the nursing home and sat in the car I looked up and saw these subtle, but beautiful clouds. At that moment the decision to chase a sunset photo over the dam was made.
The long exposure that captures the light after sun has set captured the beauty most spectacularly. In life it's best to let our beauty shine before our sun sets.
