Needle Mountains Belt of Venus well after sunset
Blowing snow just after sunset, San Juan Mountains
The day after a recent winter storm moved out of the San Juan Mountains of SW Colorado, the temperature quickly dropped below zero. Before the sun set, the frigid air was compounded by blowing snow which made for some really cold body parts that were exposed to this beautiful scene of nature.
After sunset, the wind calmed down and by the time the colored layers of the belt of venus set in, the frigid air had cleared somewhat providing for a nice look showcasing the Needle Mountains. Pigeon (left) and Turret Peaks stood out beautifully with the fresh snow clinging to their steep slopes and fir trees below forming the perfect Christmas scene.
Wising you all a wonderful Christmas and holiday season!
