Giewont at sunset

This photo of Giewont (1894 meters above sea level) was taken during sunset from high vantage point (approximately 1100 meters above see level). I wanted to include several layers in this shot: sky with clouds, mountain peak, forests and town in the valley. Houses and trees give nice sense of scale to this image. I'm also pretty happy with the light - it was warm and shined beautifully on the Giewont's summit.
