Hello TE members,
This is a sunset shot. It was so much fun to watch the clouds roll by and the colors of the sky change as the sun was setting. The sun was setting to the left of this image. A few moments later the clouds were pink. This was taken off the highway up a ways from Ridgeway, Colorado. I don't know the name of the peak and when I looked on a map it was hard to tell because there are several in the same area but it is near the Dallas Divide. This area is a scenic byway and is the same highway that leads to Telluride although Telluride is another 30 miles up the road.
I went to this area to see and photograph the fall colors but I think I was about a week too soon for the real great color display. All in all, it was a good trip and I saw some very beautiful countryside.
I think I zoomed in to 105 with my lens. I added contrast to the bottom portion in Lightroom.
Please enjoy my photo.

oggi il caso ha voluto che le nostre foto fossero vicine e che entrambe fossero caratterizzate da un notevole sviluppo verticale.
Il mio sgurdo non poteva non cadere sulla tua bella foto e notare quanto sia curata la composizione e la stessa ripresa che si avvale non solo di un bel soggetto ma anche di una luce straordinaria.
Una foto molto curata alla quale conferisce ulteriore fascino il bel taglio e la cura del colore e di ogni pił minuto dettaglio.
Ciao e buona giornata

We enjoy, dear Karen ;o)
Indeed you were to early for fall colors but I hope you will have other opportunities.
I like the horizontal strips of colors (trees, mountain, clouds) and appreciate the variation of green in th etrees.
The cloud produces an interesting shade effect on the moutains.

Wonderful - color rich and sharp photo. Very well done. The depth of clouds add strength to the photo and great contrast to the mountains ... the trees add great fall colors. Very nice "painting like" photo!
