Uploaded: June 01, 2009


Sunset last night in Minden, Nevada.

I've seen a lot of sunsets, and this was one of the most interesting, colorful, and bizarre. I can't recall having seen such an even mix of yellow, orange, purple and blue sunset tones. The unreal tone to the blue as seen towards the left side was strange and is well represented in this image.

I barely made it to the edge of town in time to capture this. I'm so glad I did!
