Re: Wow...

Thanks, Marc. Taking in a sunset like that from 10,000 feet before a ski descent is a pretty special day.

Re: Awesome Glow!

Thanks. It happened to be an especially amazing Western sunset. We were talking about doing a sunset tour for about a week, and we lucked out big with this one.

Excellent Capture.....

What a beautiful captured it well. I feel a picture of the Day coming on. Would you mind if I added this one to my Sunsets and Sunrises of the Wasatch Album?

Re: Excellent Capture.....

Oh and so I did. I have been waiting for someone to post an outstanding picture of Nelson Peak for quite some time. Well fits nicely on the Oquirrh Page. Keep up the masterpieces Sisyphus.

Re: Excellent .....

Echoing the TWINS comments:

What an astounding view of Nelson & the Oquirrhs !!!

And, those are natural clouds, because I don't see any "yellow gunk" in them. : ))

So, I work for a company headquartered in SLC. And I know when the sky looks like this...what's going on. ;) All the asthmatics are puffing away on their inhalors and we don't see the sun for days - like Seattle. ;)

Beautiful pic, though.

Re: Inversion?

Ha. Yeah, usually it's the particulate matter in the air that produces a sunset like this, but the cloud cover in the photo rolled in above the inversion near sunset, so those are actually real clouds.
