Most of the daylight hours were with sunny skies but very high levels of haze in the athmosphere, precluding shots of nearby Mount Evans while I was at the Denver Tech Center picking up a new tire for Scarlett's pusher wheel.
This shot should give you an idea of how hazy things were in terms of getting a look at the mountains to the west:
At Martha's High School parking lot
A snow covered trail leading to a gate guarding some grazing fields
I positioned Scarlett at what I've come to call Sunset Point, its a paved area where someday there will be a road going into a new housing development, near the junction of Picadilly Road and Hampden Avenue.
As you can see, I'd call this sunset a "fair" one. Quite a few golds and reds but no dramatic fiery colors illuminating cloudy skies. I am beginning to think that's a summer thing here in Colorado.
Still, the pictures came out OK and they should give you an idea of the color changes as the sun finally set behind the front range mountains. Temperatures were in the middle to high 20s Fahrenheit as the sun faded from the sky, so not too cold.
