Photo of the day by Albert Dros

The image is called ‘Mordor’. This image was taken in the beautiful Val di Funes in the Dolomites, Italy. The little church’s name is St. Johann’s Church. While I was shooting the sunset, that actually took place behind me, the clouds above the peaks were constantly changing. I already captured different kind of situations and was shooting for about an hour when the colors seemed to be fading away. I packed my gear and was ready to walk to my car. Right at that moment there was a cloud behind the peaks getting a big reflection from the sun that was already down. It looked like some kind of nuclear ball and started glowing behind the peaks. I quickly set up my gear and started shooting again. It was already quite dark so the glowing effect made a beautiful contrast. This is a long exposure that gives a very surreal feel to the scene. Sometimes you get the best images when you least expect it!
