Red Skies over Mt Sopris

Throwback from a couple of years ago......driving from Aspen to Denver and caught this amazing sunset over Mount Sopris. It was actually a bit of dumb luck that got me to this location. I was slowing down for traffic when I noticed a bunch of serious photographer-looking dudes running across the street, armed to the hilt with tripods and big camera gear. Not being one to pass up a good opportunity, I had to investigate. A quick swerve to the right, a bit of illegal parking...and I was soon joining the party. They talked a lot about clouds.....strato-this and cumulo-that........and I just went along, nodding like I knew what they were talking about. I don't think I walked away any smarter, but it was nice having some company while I watched this scene come to life.
