Silhouette Sunday

One evening recently, every cloud in the sky lit up in pink at sunset. One of my favorite aspen groves was bathed in pink light.
When I see a sunset like this one developing, I'm always torn about whether to head to the view of the Continental Divide or head for my favorite spot for silhouette photos. On this evening, we hustled to the silhouette spot. It was the tail end of the sunset, almost dusk, but it was glorious.
I think that I notice and appreciate Nature's glorious displays even more now that I am a photographer. I recognize a truly special moment and make sure I don't miss it! The pink sunset was one of those moments.


  1. I like that Shyla is in the pink! Your sky was gorgeous.

  2. We do get some beautiful sunsets out here in the west! Beautiful shots!

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley
