On the last day of an elk scouting excursion with my brother Gabe, another intoxicating Colorado sunset was taking form. Flying across the landscape to find the perfect shot, within reason, couldn't have been a better task since my brother had just recently became the owner of a Land Cruiser.

From a distance, my brother spotted a small grove of trees that sat perfectly in the open for a fantastic foreground subject. It was a matter of waiting for the right lighting and the virga to light up and POW!

It was a wicked way to spend the last moments in an area with my brother after such an arduous weekend.
