Pretty in Pink

This is an early Sky Watch post for me, I usually post on Friday. However, tomorrow starts vacation and I may not be around a computer. Yeah!

Here's the tail end of a spectacular sunset earlier this week. By the time I got to a place that I could shoot without houses, the sunset degenerated to this.

Not too bad in itself, but you should have seen the one that got away!

Be sure to visit SkyWatch Friday for more.

She must've been a serious beauty.

Well you certainly did this sunset justice even if we missed the best part. I have fond memories and images of outstanding CO sunsets.

Beautiful picture and I know how beautiful sunsets can be in COS...we lived there 25 years and we're going back for a visit the end of the month ... can't wait.

Really gorgeous scene. I'd love to go walking through that field (if you're allowed!). What a dramatic sky, too!

Thanks everyone!

Linnea - this Ute Valley park, you can walk out there, but I'd imagine it'd be very wet and muddy out there :)

See Ute Valley Park for other views of the park.
