Santa Fe sunset

Well, I don't normally publish two photos from the same town in a row, but I just can't help myself with this one.  I recently was working on my shots that I took in Santa Fe, NM last summer, and came across some real keepers!  This sunset shot was one of them and it was every bit as dramatic in person as it appears in this shot.  The only bummer is that I was not able to get a good vantage point.  Although outside of Santa Fe there are a lot of hills, when you are in town you are on land as flat as a book.

I saw the sky doing its magic and as you can imagine my heart was racing and I was scanning for a decent view left and right.  Finally I realized I was stuck with the street view, and since the light is so transient anyways, I just set up and took down some brackets.  Oh well, it was a beautiful sunset whether I had a beautiful location to shoot it from or not.  :)
