Evening Storms Over Last Dollar

What a scene this was over the famous Last Dollar Ranch along Last Dollar Road in Telluride, Colorado. 
This is quite the famous location and has been used in most of the ads for Budweiser which feature their horses, Marlboro and Coors. 
The weather came in out of no where and rather unexpectedly. Things in the Rockies though can change rather quickly and that's one of the things I enjoy about living here. The light was rather amazing to work with here but presented some problems with the dynamic range and capturing it all. Tough conditions and a tough shot where after a few tries I was able to get the exposure I wanted. 
I hope you all enjoy it.

If I recall correctly, and I could be wrong, this is Mt. Sneffels on the right (in the Sneffels range) and the camera is looking to the SSE or ESE. In other words this is taken from the N side of the range. Isn't it a bit misleading (and perhaps not your intent) to say "in Telluride CO.?" True though, that as the crow flies, Telluride isn't too far away. Also worth noting that the "Hateful Eight" filmed some of its movie from the N. side of this range.

Not at all as the address for the Last Dollar Ranch is actually Telluride :) 
7207 Last Dollar Rd, Telluride, CO 81435
You're correct on the name of the peaks.

Yeah I was rather shocked at how "cheap" it sold for. I expected a much higher price.
