Rocky Mountain Sunset Surprise

Professional photographer Richard H. Hahn was on the south side of the park’s Deer Mountain when he noticed the unique cloud formation in the dusk sky. He rushed to find a shooting angle that would place the colorful clouds in the context of the valley and mountains, and he snapped the magnificent view at 5:02 p.m. MST (7:02 EST).
