Letterbox Sunset behind Summit of Murahwa Mountain.
12 image time-lapse montage of a 'Letterbox' Sunset which took place behind summit of Murahwa Mountain between 5.29 and 5.31 pm. The descending late afternoon Sun unexpectedly re-appeared through a narrow gap between moving low cloud and the middle of the summit displaying wonderful marbled effect. A beautiful close-up animation has been produced which will be posted as a comment if this montage is published.
