Sunset at Mountain Trail - Caramulo #Portugal
(Click on the photo to view it large)

Photo description and details:
I was driving my 4x4 through some mountain trails at Caramulo when I noticed the sun rays lighting the dry grass on this path. This was it. My quest was over. This was the right spot to shoot the sunset. 

Estava eu a conduzir o meu 4x4 por trilhos da Serra do Caramulo quando reparei nos raios de sol que iluminavam a erva seca do caminho. É isto. A minha busca tinha terminado. Este é o local ideal para fotografar o pôr do Sol.

Camera: Nikon D7100
Lens Tokina: AT-X PRO SD 11-16 F2.8 (IF) DX II
Five exposures, spaced by ±2.0 EV and tone mapped in Photomatix Pro. 
Final processing in Lightroom 5. 
The central exposure:  
Aperture: f/8.0
Speed: 1/13 sec.
Focal length: 11mm
ISO: 125
