Colorado's Painted Sunsets

Sunsets in Colorado can be some of the most spectacular around, especially when setting over the Rocky Mountains.  Just driving along I-25 can be an adventure as it was for one of our photographer's just the other day.  Take your time and enjoy the wonderful and colorful sunsets and amazing cloud formations that seem to be painted on a canvas rather than the suns light traveling through moisture droplets and particles in the air.
  God's canvas is as large as the sky and his paints as brilliant as any painter can imagine.

Photographer:  Photo Amature

Camera: Nikon D80.  These were taken out the window of a moving vehicle, and yet due to the distance came out fantastic.

I hope that you enjoyed the sky show.  Nature is just another beautiful thing in life to be thankful for during the month of November.
   Now with December arriving I am hoping for some festive and fun pictures you may have or will aquire as you look for those special moments and places and circumstances when something in this world moves you and makes you just want to remember it with a photograph.  Keep your camera or phone with camera capabilities close at hand and when you capture a great moment be sure to send it in and share with us.  We would love to have you join our group of Amateur Photographers.
  I would like to remind all our younger photographers and children that you are very welcome to join in the fun of photography and to discover your hidden eye for art and appreciation of the world you live in.  See upper right sidebar for info on how to submit pictures and to join in the fun.

As one who loves what I call skyscapes, I find these facinating. But is it just me or does anyone else think there are strange sky phenomena, things in cloud formations that have never been seen before the past 2 or 3 years?
