AMAZING SKIES
PHOTO CONTEST

Congratulations to the Winners:

Arpan Das

This shot was taken at Tre Cime di Lavaredo in Italian Dolomites during the sunset. The whole day was cloudy and rainy. I thought there will be no light to shoot. But the rain stopped just 30 minutes before the sunset and the magic started to begin. Probably the best sunset I have ever seen. The crescent moon was ice on the cake :)
