City Park Sunset

The NxNW crew had a great trip out to Moab, but Michael Criswell didn’t have a flight out of Denver until early Tuesday morning so he spent the night at Casa de Louie (my house). I took the opportunity to give Mike a quick tour of Denver Monday evening and based on the weather patterns I had a feeling their was going to be a good sunset that evening. I figured even if we didn’t get a good sunset that Mike would still be able to get a nice skyline shot of Denver over the lake at City Park. It’s one of my favorite views of downtown.

We’ve had a late Spring this year and unfortunately our Cherry Blossoms hadn’t bloomed yet at City Park. I’m still waiting for them to bloom in hopes that I can get another shot at City Park with the blossom trees in their full glory. Anyway, by the time we arrived, the clouds looked like they were setting up nicely and were developing some nice patterns coming over the mountains.  Just before sunset hit, the clouds on the horizon started to break up and color started to develop as the sun dropped behind the mountains giving backlight to the clouds.  This is my capture from that evening.  Be sure to check out Mike Criswell’s image from that wonderful Monday evening in Denver, Colorado.
