Or maybe it's Horsetooth Foothills. Or maybe I should just call it Horsetooth Reservoir. Anywho, this is a shot from the Horsetooth Reservoir in the foothills near Fort Collins, CO. My friend Bob [link]
and I were up visiting our friends Jake [link]
and Chris for a few days. Jake's gotten some greats shots from this reservoir so I was stoked when he said we were gonna give it shot.
The sunset wasn't very dramatic and turned out to be a bit hazy. I walked back toward the other guys thinking they were ready to head out. Jake had suggested we hang around and wait for the post sunset glow to hopefully illuminate the southern clouds. Sure enough, soft cool light spilled over the nearby ridge while also casting a strong pink hue into the clouds about 20 min. after sunset. Being on a sandy beach of a lake while surrounded with huge boulders makes for a really neat scene that I don't witness often, so I wanted to incorporate all of those features into the image.
Turned out to be a great way to begin the night with some of my greatest friends in the most beautiful of states.
