At my family's house in Twain Harte, the view of the sunset is awesome. After a fresh snow and as the sun approached the horizon, I grabbed my camera knowing the perfect light wouldn't last. I didn't have time to get out the tripod, so I shot the next two photos handheld. Sure enough, about 3 minutes later the sun dropped below the horizon and the visuals completely changed.
