Sometimes beauty is where you least expect to find it.
This was a sunset in late July 2013, only looking east in the opposite direction. While the true sunset was spectacular as well, this was equally as beautiful, if not more so. Looking east toward the Catoctin Mountain from the foot of Short Hill Mountain in Loudoun Valley in western Loudoun County, Virginia. Heading south on Hillsboro Road in Purcellville, Virginia at 8:34pm. The setting sun was lighting up thunderstorms off to my east near Leesburg and Lovettsville. Spectacular to say the least. I only wish I could have gotten the lighting in this photo too.
