Notes:
The name of this place translates to Beautiful Mountain. Every evening the sun sets behind that distant hill and on an evening like this it’s easy to see why the name was chosen. Working fast in the rapidly changing end of day light, I tried to convey some sense of the crispness of color and light that saturated this scene. Not sure how successful I was in being true to what I saw and felt, but the results have their own sort of charm. I’ll call it a tie.
