Sunset in Buena Vista, Colorado (Photos - August 12, 2007)

Pink Clouds

I had great fortune with photographing the sunset at Independence Pass and Cottonwood Pass on the past two nights respectively, and I walked to the southern end of Chaffee County Road 337 to see what the "color show" would be like this evening. For those of us fortunate enough to call the town of Buena Vista, Colorado home, we enjoyed some very pretty sunset colors this evening.

The photo above was the view facing southwest with the Buffalo Peaks in the bottom left corner.

Purple Clouds

Looking straight west towards Johnson Village and the gulch leading to Trout Creek Pass, there were some deep pink and purple shades.

Sangre De Cristo Mountains

To the south, orange and pinks shades hovered over the Sangre De Cristo Mountains.

Mt. Princeton

The view of Mt. Princeton, which is very likely the most recognizable mountain for those in town. The summit stands at 14,197 feet in altitude!
