A Buena Vista Sunrise (Photos on December 3, 2007)
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!
The view looking south towards the Sangre De Cristo Mountains.
The clouds grow brighter and turn into shades of yellow.
Now I was standing on the roadside of Rodeo
Road for almost all of these pictures. This is the view looking practically
straight east towards Johnson Village and
the valley leading to Trout Creek Pass.
Midland Hill can be seen on the far left.
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.
One token shot of me. Yes, I am the webmaster
of this web site and I do my best to promote the town of Buena Vista and the surrounding area. ;)
