West Side Sunset by Jacob-Routzahn West Side Sunset by Jacob-Routzahn
Every single shot that I have taken of the reservoir has been from the eastern side. I have known that there was a route to the western banks, but until this photo, I was too encompassed with the eastern side. It wasn't until I finally went over there that I realized what I was missing.

There are foothills to goof around on, inlets and coves, trails galore and sandstone. Beautiful, red sandstone. The formations are outstanding and give a new vibrancy to the natural elements I try and capture.

So, being pleasantly surprised on my first journey to the west side with the sandstone, a wonderful, vivid sunset this evening was that much better. And, for the first time, I could face east and still have water in the image for a reflection.

Another colorful sunset filled with shouts of a happy photographer.

And yes, there was truly that much color cast over the land. I don't think I have ever witnessed so much diffusion from a cloud before. Spreading that much color across the land. It truly was a sight to behold.

I hope you all enjoy this photo as much as I did taking it.
