Grouse Mountain Skyfire
This very mountainy shaped mountain is along the side of the road that leads to Steamboat Lake from the town of Steamboat Springs, Colorado. I was out this evening shooting with my friend Derek Kind and we were treated to a pretty sweet sunset over the mountain and lake. Fun fact, most of the worlds mountains are not shaped like a mountain - over 60% of them.... well to be fair I should say not shaped like the stereotypical mountain a five year old draws with a crayon (like this one with a clear sharp peak). Most of them are much more rounded and have no prominent peak sticking up. I learned this fact from one of my favorite podcasts called No Such Thing As A Fish - which I highly recommend!
