Outstanding ...

I never knew Denver was so close to Evans.

I have to go there more often. To Evans, that is! Incredible shot!!!

Re: Outstanding ...

Denver is about 37 miles away. I zoomed in a bit.

Very Striking

I wouldn't normally vote on a photo with a cityscape, but this one is very striking. Great job capturing that moment! --mark d.

Fabulous.....

lighting, great composition, and an unusual capture. Mountain goat shots are a dime a dozen on SP, but this one is unique.
