On one hand, I think the best way to experience this very sunset* is to watch the video I made: Colorado Sunset Time-Lapse – In A Colorado Minute (Week 341). But just looking at a few of the photos I took that night works even better for realizing how much the scene changes during a Colorado sunset – before and after the sun disappears first behind the mountains, then behind the true horizon.
|Before the sun sets.|
|As the sun sets behind the mountains.|
|After the sun sets behind the Rocky Mountains.|
|The most magic time during a river reflection sunset.|
|As the sun sets behind the true horizon.|
|After the sun sets behind the true horizon.|
