Sue Vincent and I have been talking about pictures you take that are so different that no one even believes they are real. So here are my scarlet mountains which are reflections of the red sunset in the west. The mountains are east of Phoenix.

When I first saw them, I didn’t even believe they could be so red. I’d never seen a sunset so red it reflected a whole range of mountains. So these are the pictures. No filters. No special processing. Just the reflection of a scarlet sunset on the mountains nearby.

  1. Wow, Marilyn, the colours on those mountains are just staggering. It must have been truly awe-inspiring to be there.


    1. I was really taken aback. We weren’t in a position to stop anywhere and take pictures — heavy moving traffic in downtown Phoenix — so I did the best I could shooting through windows. I don’t think I’ve ever seen anything like that before.

    1. Never seen anything like it. That those mountains are mostly just rocks with some cactus probably helps, but it looked so unreal. I wasn’t sure anyone would believe it when they saw it. As the sunset dims, you can see how the rock goes from bright red to dark red and finally, fading it stone.
