Photographer's Note

A view of Mount Baker (located in the USA) seen from our area at sunset.

About this photo: Last night I noticed a pinkish glow in the sky, so I went outside to have a look and I saw Mount Baker basking in the last sunlight of the day. The building in the distance caught a bit of the last sunlight as well and the sky was painted in beautiful colours. I just had to get my camera and take a photo of it.
