Winter Sunset

I have to say that one of the things I enjoy the most here in Colorado is the amazing sunsets we get, especially after a storm or a cold front has come through the area.  This usually means the day after a storm the cloud accumulation and color in the sky during the sunset is going to be spectacular.  Last Wednesday evening the evening sky did not disappoint. I was heading home and I look over out my window in my car and the most amazing sky greeted me. I immediately looked for some higher ground and pulled my car into a neighborhood ahead with an overlook of the city.  This was one of the days when I’m glad I had my camera with me.  I snapped a few with my iPhone for my Twitter followers and then was able to get some handheld shots of the amazing evening sunset with my dSLR.
