Monument & Juniata Sunsets

Monday, Tuesday & Friday, July 23,24 & 27, 2012

Since the monsoon season here on the western slope of Colorado is in full effect, I went out to photograph a couple of sunsets this week after work. On Monday I drove up to the Colorado National Monument right after some heavy rain had passed through the area. The road up to the Visitor’s Center was covered with debris and rockfall from some flash flooding, so I had to drive extra carefully. I decided to stop at the Book Cliffs View to take a few photos.

The potholes were full of water, and the light was striking the tops of the monuments in the distance.

A rainbow formed over the Grand Valley, and the Grand Mesa was lit up nicely, too

A touch of pink is added to the clouds in the sky above Monument Canyon.
