Desert Mountain Sunset

I took the photo used in this month's tutorial with my new digital camera that I gave myself for Christmas. I did a bit of fiddling with the image in Photoshop and stripped in a new sky to add more drama. In this month's tutorial, we'll attempt to recreate the photo, or at least a reasonable facsimile of the photo. The mountain has a fair amount of snow on it so it seemed appropriate to show the mountain with snow falling. The snow effect was created with Xara Modules Snow Photo Effect.
