Beautiful composition and excellent lighting. Well done.
I heard about those vipers and about how venomous they are. I hope that this one was really small (btw, how small was it?), otherwise you slept with the death as a cushion...
About the shot I love the colors and the texture. Regards.

Sidewinder Riding on a camel from Jaisalmer (Rajasthan, India) it takes about a day to arrive at the Thar Desert where I camped with my Indian guides in the midst of the dunes. Waking up in the morning I lifted my backpack, which I used as a cushion, and there curled up a very poisenous saw-scaled viper lay curled up - having slept under my head that night.....
I carried the small snake into the dune at sunrise and had a little photo session using my 20mm wide-angle. This is one of my personal favourite shots.
