The Golden Glow of Sunset by taffy

The Golden Glow of Sunset

After a full day (with a bit of a late start) of hiking on a fairly challenging trail, we were rewarded (though we could barely move) with this sunset upon on return to the trailhead at the visitor's center. Really amazing.

Daryl's sunset: http://365project.org/darylo/album4/2015-10-30
I've appreciated your wonderful comments on yesterday's posts. Also, Daryl, Junko, and I have been reading your comments aloud throughout the day when we happen to be in an area with an internet signal (once at the top of a mountain), with great joy! We are having a great time together!
And finally -- thanks for sending my park sculpture to TT!!
Note: my 100th TT photo!
Breathtaking, Taffy! :) Fav!

I always enjoy looking at hill shots that show recession such as yours, probably because I do not get many opportunities in my part of England to or take this type of image.

November 2nd, 2015  
OMG This is spectacular !!!!!!!! I'm sure I will see it again on Friday !!!!!
November 4th, 2015  
@lesip :-) Thank you SO much -- and I hope you are right! This is one of my personal favorites of any of the photos I've taken! It was so cool to see the mountains going on forever, and I have about 6 versions of this from across several hours in that area!
November 4th, 2015  
This is how they got their name, I'm sure! Beautiful shot- and also a fav.
November 5th, 2015  
Congratulations, Taffy!! What an amazing sight this must have been!! It is so cool to see all three versions of it on TT this week....it was definitely worth the arduous hike up that mountain!!
November 6th, 2015  
@panthora I had to laugh when I read your comment. The arduous hike was before the sunset, and when we finally climbed back up (from the hike down), we got to the parking lot area...walked about 100 yards, and this was our view! So the hike was totally NOT needed to see this amazing site! Daryl's photo was taken though from another vantage point up higher so she did do a second really tough climb, but both Junko and I decided we could not walk another step after we started up the climb, so we turned around and photographed from the 'scenic overlap.'
November 6th, 2015  
Congrats on TT! So beautiful and worth the climb!
November 6th, 2015  
Wow I somehow missed this, love the gorgeous gold tones and layers of the mountains! So nice to see all three of theses shots on the TT.
Congrats!!
