Scenic Buena Vista

A Buena Vista Sunrise (Photos on December 3, 2007)

Colorado Sunrise December 3, 2007 - I woke up at 5:30 a.m. and ventured out along Rodeo Road (Chaffee County Road 321), a north-south road southwest of Buena Vista, to take pictures of the sunrise. The adjacent photo was the very first shot of the color show that was about to happen!

Soon, a large horizontal stretch above the mountains turned shades of pink and orange.

It was really pretty!

There were some soft pink clouds hovering over the Collegiate Peaks range to the west.

In the bottom photo, I zoomed-in as far as I could to capture one of my favorite 13ers in Turner Peak (alt. 13,232). It is the pointed peak way out there inside the canyon.

Last but not least, here are three various shots of the actual sun showing itself as it rose above the mountains.

By the time I snapped this photo, much of the sky was very blue and it felt like daytime.
