Winter Sunset Over Snowy Lake Powell

Lake Powell SnowSoon I was rewarded with the most wonderful soft sunset glow, very much amplifying the red rocks in the clouds, the sun’s colors in the snow and really making the the saturated clouds and water pop.

With huge vistas of Northern Arizona and Southern Utah I could easily see some continued snowfall and clouds many miles up lake.
