Shown above is a captivating sunset scene I observed earlier this summer from Mount Chasseral, Switzerland (5,269 ft or 1,606 m). The camera is facing southeast. Lake Neuchâtel is at lower right. The ambiance created by the interplay of clouds, shadows and fading light was fantastic. At the top, the triangular shadow of Mount Chasseral can be seen cast upon the cloud deck. Note the rainbow fragment at the lower right-center. Photo taken on July 1, 2020.

Photo Details: 5D3 camera; 135 mm; F11; ISO 100; 1/15 second exposure time.
