Sunset Photos from Absarokee, Montana a.k.a Big Sky Country

The following photos were taken in Absarokee (about 30 miles northwest of Red Lodge, Montana) on Thanksgiving day.  The sky was so mesmerizing as the turkey was getting ready that I seized the opportunity to take these photos which I am happy to share with you.

This first photo includes the moon (top left of photo).

Here is a panoramic photo (taken a couple of minutes before) so that you can get a better sense of the beautiful landscape and sunset sky.

Here's one to highlight the view of the Beartooth-Absaroka mountain range.

And here's one to leave you with (a zoom towards the sun setting and hiding behind the mountains).

There is something about a sky without any obstructed view no matter which way you look especially at dawn and dust.   No wonder they refer to Montana as big sky country.

It's Good to Be Here!!

Hi Gerry - I love the panoramic shot.  I just finished oohing and aaahing at Mary's Colorado mountain photos and now a Montana sunset.  What a great evening of travel.

Marc,

I did have a very good Thanksgiving in company of friends and loved ones.   I did notice traffic picking up yesterday in our little town.  Lots of tourists came to Red Lodge to ski as our ski mountain which opened for its 50th year on Black Friday. I am sure this resulted into more sales for the restaurants and shops in town.

Steve,

Those are fairly close to the pink and blue cotton candy colors swirled together as Liz mentioned in her comment above.   Thank you for the feedback.

Jenny,

Don't you love the very inexpensive e-traveling from the comfort of your own home?  :)

Thank you for visiting and the positive travel feedback.   Of course, I had to go check Mary's mountains too.

Marchel,

Thank you.  The display of these intense colors in the sky lasted a few minutes at most but it was breathtaking to see it in person.   I am glad you enjoyed these pictures.

Debi,

Thank you for the compliments!  I thought I would put my camera away on that day and just enjoy Thanksgiving.  Not!   :)    I rushed for my camera which I had left in my car as soon as I noticed the special configuration of the clouds and stunning colors of the sky at sunset.   After about 5 minutes of taking photos (I did manage to stay away from my own camera after that), I was back inside, enjoying company and back to the Thankgiving program.
