Colorado Sunset
June 2011 to January 2012 - All of these photos were taken with my Canon SD 1200 IS "point and shoot" digital camera. Among the six of eight that are sunset images, I was facing west outside of Buena Vista, Colorado. This is a town known for its spectacular views of the mountains in nearly all directions. Above was taken in Summer 2011. I love the overall composition, especially the colors and the contour of the mountains.

With this picture, I distinctly remember thinking that the sunset wasn't very exciting. However, there was one interesting section of sky that had a lot pink and lavendar with a touch of orange where the sky met the mountains. I get many compliments for this photo, but what people don't realize is I zoomed-in as much as I could and deleted 90% of the photo, which consisted of boring sky. ;)

Thicker clouds with a great deal of orange and red in the sky.

Colorado Sunrise
I was on an early morning summer walk in Buena Vista, CO (about 6 a.m.) when the sunrise entertained me.
Beautiful Sunrise Photo
This was one of the most blazing sunrises/sunsets I had ever seen in my life. It was a summer morning, and I opened the front door of my house to find this wonder. Thankfully, I had my camera handy.

Last but not least, I was driving between Cripple Creek and Victor in Teller County, Colorado, when the sunset to the west began to show a lot of color. I slowed down to about 20-25 mph, rolled down the passenger side window and carefully snapped this picture. The Sangre De Cristo Mountains is the range way out there.
