By the time I made it out to the shore of Dillon Reservoir with the dogs, it was bright daylight, or at least much brighter than the crepuscular light that I’d become accustomed to for that hour of the day. Not to worry, the lighting along the coves near the Heaton Bay Campground was still dramatic, one of the nice things about November from a photography perspective — the sun doesn’t pop straight up, it creeps along the horizon for a bit! After running a couple of errands in Silverthorne, I made one quick stop at the I-70 scenic overlook, taking a quick iPhone snap of the cloud drama, edited and posted below.
