During the day I had already expected the evening to be a complete loss. It was an unruly November day, with weather changes occuring every 15 minutes, from bright sun to heavy snow. Shortly after sunset I was on my way home when I decided to stop at this location, which is right off the highway. The view before me grabbed my attention so I decided to set up my tripod/camera and even managaed to drop one of my lenses in the snow. When I looked through the viewfinder, I realized it was so dark that I couldn't see a thing. Despite all this, I persisted because the view on the horizon caught my eye. I had to act quick as the scene before me was slowly disappearing, so I made my best educated guess and set exposure time to 300s.
I took one shot.
