Description

The Wet Mountain Valley in Colorado is famous for the unusual clouds that develop over this long, narrow valley which is tucked in between the Rockiy Mountains to the West and the Wet Mountains to the East. And this autumn sunset cloud was especially crazy: Not only the bizarre shape and the giant size, but the purple color made this vapor creation so special. The moon is the icing on the cake.
