Mark, love that shot at Molas!

Here's one I took from the Grand Mesa this past weekend. The haze/smoke in the air made for a very red sun.

Grand Mesa Sunset by Matt-Payne, on Flickr


Yes, Kimo's is awesome! I love the shadow on the Needle and the small reflection area in South Colony.

Thanks for your compliment.....but man, the only thing better than your Grand Mesa shot on Facebook is this one. I know it's the same photo, but it's bigger here! =D>

Thanks for the kind words, gentlemen. Matt, the Grand Mesa photograph is otherworldly. Great photograph.

I know it is not in the mountains, but wanted to share this amazing sunset over Lake Erie; not often one drops in your lap like this.

Thanks Cameron. Did what I could with what I had. Just wish I had another 2mm of wide angle. And some clouds would have been nice!

Bravo, gents.....Kimo, Kane, Cameron (law firm? :mrgreen: ). You guys have officially transcended the "cliche" stigma of sunrise/sunset photography. =D>

Cameron's jaw dropping shot of the Great Sand Dunes reminded me of a few I took near sunset over the years (the first two are from 2005 with a point and shoot):
