Snowy Sunrise

We in the Metro Denver area got a dusting of snow overnight, perhaps an inch tops in the areas near my home anyways.

Scarlett and I rode out at 0635 from the neighborhood and headed for the Aurora Race Track for some open views of the sunset.

Temperatures were a bit "brisk" with the onboard thermometer telling me it got as low as 12ºF (-11 ºC) as we rode along.

The sun was just beginning to color the skies with warm orange colors as I arrived and posed Scarlett:

Once the sun was well clear of the horizon, it was time to put on gloves again, to warm up my frozen hands and for one last shot looking to the South:

As we rode back towards home on Quincy Avenue, we stopped for a couple of pictures of Mount Evans on the western horizon, as it was lit up by the rising sun:

Dom, the 2nd pic is gorgeous. Why not make it the new header?

Thanks SonjaM, I just might, there's one ahead of it though in the rotation.

More beautiful photos.

Is the Aurora Racetrack the same thing as the Interstate?

Steve Williams said...

Nice photos. I'm not sure though if you're in love with the setting sun or the URAL. Can't be both...

RichardM, the racetrack is an actual racetrack....for horse racing.

Coop a.k.a. Coopdway said... favorite! There's just something about that fence and the fresh 2 tracks.

Sorry for the late replies.

Steve Williams, it's both.

Coop, thanks for your comments.
