Sunset in Colorado Springs. The leaves are still on most of the trees, but winter is coming. Right at sunset, there are beautiful colors over the mountains, giving very nice contrasts. While I was taking these shots, an older woman walked by and commented on how beautiful the sunset was. Apparently, she was out to take in the sight as well, and let me tell you, it has to be special to get locals out into the night air. This was an unusual show, but there are many such distinctive views in Colorado.
I also included a few shots of my front yard tree in full fall colors. I have a few other shots of it which I will post elsewhere, but these were taken in twilight so I felt they belonged here.
So, anyway, I like these shots, taken in Colorado Springs facing west on October 22, 2017. The thing I strive for most is distinctive, mellow colors which portray a scene that is almost like an oil painting. If I capture an elusive moment in time, so much the better. I may or may not have achieved that here, but that is the goal.
I hope you enjoy the vibrant colors as much as I do.
