Tonight was a fantastic two-for-one night. On the way home from work via C-470 I was treated to yet another spectacular sunset over the Colorado front range (which, as a matter of course, I promptly took a picture of with my camera phone).
Having a beautiful sunset to follow for most of the drive home is nothing short of wonderful. Makes the drive so much more enjoyable.
By the time I got to Lakewood it was nearly 9:00, and the sun was well beyond the horizon. The sky was a dark French Ultramarine as I neared my house, but there was an ethereal glow coming from the passenger side window as I drove the last half mile or so. Passing the East Reservoir just north of Florida Avenue I caught sight of the Moon coming up and immediately made my way to the street that ran along the north side of the reservoir. With my Nikon D5200 in hand I hiked over to the western edge of the reservoir and took a number of pictures.
Unfortunately, it being dark and me not having a light source on hand, adjusting the camera settings was nearly impossible - still, I got some nice shots.
And a few hundred mosquito bites too.
