The summer storm season in Colorado Springs is really something to see. The storm usually blow throw with a vengeance in the late afternoon. Fore me, the best part comes later after the storm has passed. I'm no meteorologist, but it seems like there is something special that happens to the atmosphere during or after these storms. Like maybe the air is cleaned of the dust and pollution, so the air is more clear or something. Whatever the reason, the skies are usually prepped and ready for stunning sunsets. Like this day last August. I went for a hike in Palmer Park in Colorado Springs. The park is full of hoodoos and other neat rock formations. The west sides of the the park also have nice views of Pike's Peak. I wasn't already setup for a photo, but I was thankfully in a great location when the sky started to start popping with and explosion of color.
I had this photo printed because I loved the sunset colors, but also because this scene reminds me so much I love living in Colorado Springs. The photo is printed on metallic paper to emphasize the brilliance of the colors in the sky and gives a cool 3D effect. I think the unfinished wood frame fits the scene perfectly also.
If you are interested in this photo, you can get it on canvas, a metallic print, or multiple other options here:
