Balanced Rock after Sunset

After work today I went to Garden of the Gods to try to get a photo of the 700-ton Balanced Rock in the evening sunshine. Unfortunately I was too late as the Sun had already dipped behind the nearby mountains, but I made the best of the remaining light for a couple of Skywatch Friday shots.
For more photos with lots of skies, both blue and otherwise, visit the awesome Skywatch Friday meme.

  20. That first photo, looks like the rock might topple over.

    Were we siblings in our previous life? We seem to be in the similar areas and taking similar photos. Our "parents" must have instilled these interest.

    We went to a rocky place and I still have so many photos.
