Purple Sky Over Denver
Lens: DA 35mm f/2.4AL Camera: K-7 Photo Location: City Park, Denver, Colorado ISO: 100 Shutter Speed: 1/90s Aperture: F5 
Posted By: rbefly, 07-22-2013, 06:55 AM

While at City Park shooting a sunset, I noticed a bank of clouds low over the city, slowly turning more purple as the light faded. This is one of the last exposures before it turned to gray.

Rain Clouds?

Hi Dave,
Yes, that's a micro-burst (I think!) to the right of the downtown skyline, but much farther West. Probably generated a quick rainstorm in Golden or North, towards Boulder. We didn't get a drop here, though!

Thanks!

Thank you for the kind words, Susan.
I'm pretty happy with the image, It was taken with the 'plastic fantastic', just about the best new prime lens you can get for $200!
