Colorado Sunset and Sky - Buena Vista, Colorado

Four Photos and Two Videos of a Dramatic Colorado Mountain Sunset - August 23, 2011

Colorado Sunset
In many respects, August is an overlooked summer month in Colorado. Most seem to vacation in June and July, and in fact by late August, much of the whitewater rafting season has come to a close. However, the weather is still relatively warm and it's a great month for climbing 14ers or other mountains hikes. Also, this time of year tends to be a great month for sunsets.

Positioned west of Buena Vista, at the corner of Gregg Drive and Chaffee County Road 337, I captured a stunning sunset transpiring over the mountains. The photos and videos speak for themselves. Enjoy!

Colorado Sunset

I tend to show only the sky and the mountains' ridges in sunset photos, but I liked the detail of the road and signs. It makes it feel like you're right there, watching this Colorado sunset. :)

Colorado Mountain Sunset

Pretty sky and colorful clouds. The pointed peak, left of center, is Sheep Mountain (elev. 11,993 feet).

Sunset Scenery

The main attraction happened over Mt. Columbia, one of many fourteeners in the Sawatch Range to the west.

No doubt, nearly all us who live in Buena Vista, Colorado are very grateful! :)
