Sunset between storms0

 We have had a lot of storms out on the high desert this past two weeks.  This week I was out locating raptor nests for the BLM when I got too late, but caught the sun setting between storms.  The first picture is taken at 200 mm while the second was taken at 70 mm.



A great way to end the day while in the wilds of Idaho.

Beautiful contrasts here of the hot sun and the dark clouds. I especially like the second photo with the hot orange clouds up over the dark ones. Exquisite.
