We have had a cool summer this year in Texas..compared to last year! Storms have been more prevalent. The week before we were to have on and off rain throughout the day. When I hear that I think that maybe the clouds will break and great sunset will appear? About 7 PM it was looking good. I live about 25 minutes from this location. It is the famous Route 360 Bridge. Just about every photographer has shot it…except me until this day! I took a drive and parked. You walk up a small steep trail to a rock that over looks the bridge. It fairly large (about 40 feet square). So setting up for a tripod is no problem. As I arrived a few people were hanging out waiting for the sunset. One couple was even taking portraits up there! Not a ton of angles up there…but you can get a great shot of the bridge and trail lights as the sun goes down. I the sun was setting to the right and as it went down the stormy clouds were lit up in red! Sweet. I expanded my wide angle to get more of the clouds. Now I can say been there done that for this shot! I did a “360” and went back down he trail!
