Evening cloud

I like a lot of the elements in this picture but what I think makes it a bit different is how close the cloud is combined with the setting sun shining through it, and of course the fact that its taken on the summit of Mt Ruapehu at around 2800m. It really was something watching the sun go down from that altitude so we stayed out as long as possible before retiring to our much less windy snow cave for the night. Taken with a Sony Cybershot DSC-WX1, snow mode.
