Photo above was taken in Taos, New Mexico in July. I've been to that part of the country a couple of times, and you hear a common theme from artists and photographers -- how beautiful the colors are around sunset. This photo was taken near the Rio Grande River Gorge, which you can see at the very bottom of the image. The town of Taos and Taos Mountains are in the background. The view here is actually the eastern sky at sunset, opposite the setting sun. 3 bracketed exposures at f/9, merged together with Nik HDR Efex and enhanced further in Nik Color Efex 4.
