Owens Valley Sunset

It didn't look like we'd have much of a sunset on this evening, but for just a moment, the light reflected onto this cloud in a way that made it look lit from within. I'm glad I was already set up here, because it lasted less than a minute. I had to shoot at a higher ISO to try and keep the foreground shrubs in focus, as it was wickedly windy. There's still a slight motion blur, even at the higher shutter speed--the valley can be one incredibly windy place!
