Evening light creeps up towards Courthouse Mountain, shrouded in a winter snowstorm.

Tonight’s sunset was a stunner in Ridgway, Colorado. It was so good I actually motivated to put a jacket on and step out to my porch with my telephoto lens. We see a lot of fine sunsets from our east-facing house, so I tend to get a bit jaded about photographing them unless there’s an exceptional light show like this evening’s!

    1. Thanks Rodrigo! The tele lens I used for these was the new Sony 70-350mm lens. These are some of the first photos I’ve shot with that lens; so far I think it’s quite nice!
