Indian Paintbrush wildflowers backlit by sunset in the San Juans, Colorado – July.

The San Juans were treated to a fantastic sunset last night, followed by an even more spectacular sunrise. I was fortunate to squeeze in a quick trip to the mountains to catch the shows.

    1. Thanks Jackson! Yeah clouds like that are pretty rare to see in Colorado, I’d say. When those started rolling over the ridges like that, you know I was scrambling for the telephoto lens! 🙂

  1. I always say, before I go out to shoot, if i come back with one shot I love, I will be happy. That shot you took of Stony Pass would make me happy for years.
