Sunset from a popular pullout along the road up to the top of Lookout Mountain and Buffalo Bill's grave. I had these lying around but never did much with them but decided to stitch them. The stitched image is 100 MP but that is only about half of the available resolution. The colors were really this strange at the time. You can see downtown Golden in the middle, the two table mountains, the buildings of the School of Mines, the Coors factory (between the two mesas) and the skyscrapers of downtown Denver towards the rightmost tree (probably not in the copies for the web though). Several years ago I shot a very similar dusk panorama on one of the very coldest evenings of the year that this should be compared to:

I wrote about that specific outing at the time as an example of how inspiring such outings into crazy weather can be. Surprisingly it is still online!
