Crags Sunset

Uploaded: March 01, 2006


At the top of the Crags trail, near Mueller State Park, CO. Looking to the west, approaching sunset. I shaded the lens from direct sunlight with a nearby tree. Tripod-mounted Nikon N65 with Nikkor ED 70-300mm zoom on Velvia.

Great composition here Tom. Super silhuette and more importantly you've got some sensational aerial perspective happening with the mountains in the background (great colour layering).

Great photo!
