I  was walking back to my car. I turned around and saw this beautiful view. Immediately I unpacked my gear and took this photo, light painting the foreground and cliffs. Many times the last photo I take in an evening is the best or strangest one.

I wanted to test out my new camera and lens, so I drove up to Vasquez Rocks, about 35 minutes from my house, and experimented with higher ISOs than I usually use.
