Ordinary Mountain View

I call this "Ordinary Mountain View" because there was inherently nothing spectacular about this particular day or sunset. Although I still see it as "extra" ordinary. This can probably be seen just about every evening in the mountain town of Idyllwild, CA. I went on a drive to find high ground to capture the sunset, and while it wasn't particularly spectacular, I was absolutely pleased with the result of this shot. I reached a high enough elevation to have a lovely vast view, providing several mountainous layers, and varying hues. I just seemed to be in the right place at the right time to capture these lovely pink & purple hues on this evening as the sun was beginning to set. I was also happy to find a spot where I could highlight the trees with some boulders in the forefront of the shot.
