Boulder: Evening Storm Clouds

While working part-time in Boulder, I was living a Marriott Residence Inn that was just a short distance away from the Sirna facilities. From my office, I noticed that it was getting dark out with some ominous clouds approaching. I took this sh0t while walking to the Residence Inn.

Backyard Autumn Dawn Panorama

This morning the colorful clouds lit up earlier than yesterday. The display only lasts a few minutes, and is then gone. I did three different panorama images while moving around in the backyard to get slightly different compositions. You can see the colors and intensity changing in the three images all taken within four minutes.

Backyard Autumn Panorama at Sunrise

Orange clouds and silhouettes of trees without leaves just before the sunrise. I looked out 20 minutes earlier, and didn’t see any clouds so didn’t expect a colorful display this morning. Then while washing some dishes, I looked out my kitchen window and saw the colors developing. Composite of eight images taken with a Nikon Df camera and 28 mm f/1.8 lens.
