A Stormy Sunset


Rural Boulder County outside of Longmont, Colorado

Sunflowers cover a field below the stormy clouds of the sunset over the Rocky Mountains. This was one seen I doubt I ever will forget....I hope you all like it.

Beautiful shot! :+fav:
I'm doing a school project on sunrises and sunsets and we're required to find some pictures on the internet. Could I maybe use this photo as a part of it? I'll make sure to give you credit. (:

Woah! Crazy clouds!

There must have been one fast changing sky that evening hah..

7:05 - [link] - Clouds and field are bright orange
4 minutes later at 7:09 - [link] - The sky suddenly turns bright blue and any hint of orange vanishes from the scene. Another 4 minutes later at 7:13 - The original orange clouds, suddenly became bright blue, become dark and ominous with pink hues mixed in - [link] Finally, just two minutes later the dark sky with pink hues suddenly turns a greenish tint - [link]

That's gotta be the fastest changing sky in the history of meteorology!.

John I think your sarcasm sensor needs a tune up buddy.

:) I don't think so, by any means, considering the note Ryan sent me. Besides, why would Ryan be sarcastic? I am sure he has better thing to do with his time than troll peoples images, after all.

So one of 2 things here, either Nate is reading it wrong or the note you sent me is full of shit. Maybe you 2 should have a pow-wow over it and discuss it. Personally I don't really care either way, I have better things to do with my time as I said.
