Fire mountains

Two days ago I mentioned that photography is all about light. Here is another example. I love this warm light on the peaks against dark blue (or grey - I'm not that good at naming colours :) ) in the lower parts of the mountains.

In this case I used a focal length of 300 mm because I wanted to focus on the peaks. It was quite late so there was little to no light in the valley. If I used a wide angle lens I would therefore end up with a heavily underexposed photo.
