Sunset on distant peaks: Route 471, Togamuratakanuma, Japan

Shot this a week ago on our way back to Tokyo from the Kanazawa/Toyama area. We were on Route 471 over the top of the hills; Toyama Nanto. This is the view towards the hills that lie at the northern side of Matsumoto.

Beautiful day. The sun was dropping and we came from the cool light of a shady valley to a point by a bridge, from where we could see the last of sun casting a wonderful warm light on the distant mountains.
