Sunset in Kingsland

It’s been bitter cold here in Texas and I’m getting tired of wearing sweaters every day. So here’s an image taken last fall at one of the best spots in the state to capture a sunset, looking west over Packsaddle Mountain. I’m going to keep posting these “warm” images until the weather breaks or I run out of shots, whichever comes first.

  1. Indeed!! I’m ready for some warmth myself. I live in Texas so I don’t have to be cold!

    Hopefully I can catch some good color myself, planning on heading out to Caprock Canyon in a few weeks if the weather’s not completely miserable.

  2. Fantastic shot Jeff that is some serious color. Patience and being there. Hope it warms up soon something is wrong when it that cold that far south of where I am.

  3. Great shot Jeff. Do you recall the time of day in relationship to time of sundown? I’ve been taking a few of these shots (just for practice on my street) and have found 30 minutes after sundown can produce some great colors some days.
