Metered the camera for backgroundto get the lovely rim lighting down her side from the setting sun. I then used a flash as the main light to camera right to cross light our Model with the sun. Lastly a flash was used on camera as an on axis fill light.

I like the effect. Almost looks like she has been cut out and pasted into the scene.
