Overlook into the Sun

Lyons Overlook -
Roxborough State Park - South of Denver, Colorado.

For those just tuning into this set .. Roxborough is a place of beautiful red rock fins in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains.

.. and now on with the story ..
Andrew and I had nearly finished our loop .. down through the rocks .. then up the back side .. Even though Andrew was not so pleased about the climb back up he agreed to go with me up the little side path to the Lyons overlook. We emerged from the stand of pines hiding the view (see previous post) .. into the glowing brightness of the winter sun .. The light had been tricky and wonderful all day .. Clear blue to the North ... and to the South .. the bright afternoon winter sun dancing in and out of the clouds ... in a way very similar to the wonder that was this spot in November

Inspired by that shot and by some images I have viewed here .. I tried a few shots into the sun veiled by clouds .. This is my favorite of the into the sun set.
