I was heading out to the Southern California desert to shoot star trails at this spot a few people told me about. I checked the weather on a new moon night and saw that it was supposed to be clear skies the whole night. So I took my time driving out since I never imagined that there would be a sunset. As I pulled up and parked I was completely overtaken by these cloud formations that had rolled in an hour before sunset. So I quickly loaded my camera on my tripod and headed out to find my composition. As the sun set below the horizon, the clouds overhead started to turn these brilliant, various colors of red... with pockets in between some of the formations to reveal the blue sky.


It's one of the most surprising images I have ever taken and one of my favorites. It goes to show you that unless you venture out and take chances you will probably never get a great photograph. You really have to put yourself out there to come up with an image you can call a masterpiece.
