August Sunset

August and September are months that can bring exceptional thunderstorms and sunsets in Utah.
This view of a sunset over West Mountain in a rural portion of Utah County was the result of keeping a camera at the ready, and shooting at sunset for several evenings in succession.

The generally dryer air in the western US often lends itself to colorful sunsets. This National Geographic article sheds more light on the subject (pun intended)!- Martin van Hemert
