Exploring the Salton

This evening I saw one of the most spectacular sunsets I’ve seen lately. I fought the urge to grab the camera instead choosing to just take it all in. I even forced myself to leave my phone in my pocket. All after only grabbing a couple of shots with the phone today because I failed to adequately manage its power yesterday.

If you ever get a chance to see the sun set across the Chocolate Mountains make sure to keep an eye to the east. The changing colors of the already beautiful Chocolate Mountains is mesmerizing. The orange glow to the west as I write this is every bit as spectacular as one would expect for this location, however, it still doesn’t match what occurred across the Chocolate Mountains this evening.

If you haven’t caught anything I’ve posted to Instagram here are a few collages, all captured with my phone.
