Wind created sunset

This week wind gusts over 60 miles per hour hit the desert around Mud Lake some 25 miles west of Rexburg mixing a lot of dust, smoke and sand in the air.  As the sun set I travelled to Mud Lake to work some pictures of the sunset.  As the sun set, the Sawtooth Mountains in the west caused the light to reflect into a "U" shape. The colors were absolutly stunning.



Just another end to a wild windy day in Idaho.

At least the wind is good for something.

Beautiful! The mountain-created U shape is fascinating. Great color. The dust/smoke/wind apparently has unexpected benefits.
