Finally, Nevada sunset pictures

I’ve been waiting for the right day along with the right weather to get my representative picture of a northern Nevada sunset.  Tonight while making dinner I glanced out the window and noticed a fantastic glow, grabbed the camera and ran outside.  These were all taken from my front yard toward the Sierra Nevada mountains.  On the other side of these mountains is Lake Tahoe.  The first 3 pictures are taken from a southwest viewpoint and turning slowly more west.

Did you notice the moon in the top picture?  Here’s a zoomed view of the first picture above.  In the second picture I fiddled with the contrast.  Otherwise, all these pictures were taken with my little Sanyo $100 camera.  I love that it can take decent pictures; although, I do envy a more powerful camera with more options.  nv-sky
