We were walking into town when I heard a deep rumble coming up the hill behind us. I had a 300mm lens mounted on my camera - turned, focused and shot. The bus was belching black smoke and was beautifully backlit by the setting sun.

Well, you live in Canada (BC, if I get it right from your web site (beautiful, by the way...)), but your name sounds French. I will write in English, just in case you don't understand French.
First of all, welcome to TE! I hope you will enjoy the ride!
There is so many photos of sunsets. It's normal since it is beautiful. But what I like here is the perfect silhouette of the bus and the driver (he seems to wear a beret). This is very peaceful. I like the color of the background too. Yes, the driver does it for me...

this is really nice photo. I like the colors and the contrast. I also made a small workshop of it. Please take a look at it and tell me if you like it.

Hi, Patrick. The silhouette of the bus and the rocks on the right of the road stand out very well against the orange sky. The lens you've used gives us the impression the sun is very close. A weel-composed picture.

Hi Patrick and welcome to TE. Great image, bold simple composition and strong colour really make this image. Well done and thanks for sharing.

It's hard not fell under the spell of this photo.
Seems a bit unrealitic, though...But guess what?
Perhaps, that's what we need a bit here...on TE.
Happy Canada Day

All the travelling mood is there.
Long way with the bus, a nice a restful stop.
Lovely capture with these silhouettes.
