Mount Evans can be difficult to photograph at night, as it often fades right into the background. Occasionally, the lighting works out, as in this instance. Right around sunset, Mount Evans was almost obscured by clouds, and it looked like it wasn’t going to get any better. Just half an hour later, the dark clouds lifted high enough above the mountain to allow the bright sky, still lit from the afterglow, to shine through, separating the mountain from the clouds.
