An amazing hill country sunset

I took this shot in the Texas hill country back in January, when I was headed out for a photographic ramble through the area with a good buddy.  It was one of those “right place, right time” things.  We both thought the light beam shooting up through the middle there was cool, and my buddy aptly named it "the solar cannon".  Obviously the clouds were doing some cool things, and that's what I love about HDR.  It just brings these things to life, almost like being there again.
