Autumn lights and shadows on the mountain slope

Well, this shot was taken last autumn on a wonderful day in the mountains when I was hiking with a horde of children. And yes, I know … it’s only a two dimensional shot without a real foreground ;-) I was taking a shot of a dark mountain under a very dramatic black cloud while the children were playing and having a snack a bit further away. But one of the children was the whole time next to me and said all the time „Manu, do you have time?“. „Yeeeeeeees, just one moment please …“ I answered all the time while I was looking through the finder of my cam. And finally when I made the shot and the little boy had my whole attention he showed me a place just around the corner behind a massive rock. And there I saw this amazing spectacle of the evening sun. My god, and I was taking that mountain in the dark while here it was playing the real music he he he. Can you imagine how my facial expression changed when I saw this paradise? I think my expression was a bit strange because he just laughed he he he. We took then the shot together ;-) And in the evening he told proudly how he found this wonderful place again and again he he he. That day he was my hero ;-)
