Yesterday happened one of the best sunsets I’ve seen (and captured) in the past few months. The trip was planned and we took the risk despite weather reports of scattered¬†thunderstorms in the region and it paid off. Though this shot almost did not happen as we were blocked by a

This was my view as I decided to call it a night. Minus the tent’s mesh ceiling of course. It was a long hot
