Photo Taken by John Morzen Photography
"I happened to be driving on the Shawangunk Mountains Scenic Byway (Route 44/55) near Kerhonkson, the evening of July 18th, 2013, when the setting sun over the Rondout Valley and Catskill Mountains caught my eye. I happened to have a DSLR camera and telephoto lens on me, and wanted to see what sort of shots I could get from one of the scenic lookout points. I was the first person to pull over, but was soon joined by a number of other photographers and interested drivers with mobile phones, all capturing the same moment you see here. This particular stretch of road is a favorite of mine in the summer, and you can often catch a decent sunset there, on any given evening."
