This is one of my favorite lakes in Boulder County Colorado. Years ago it was known as the nudie lake, back in the Boulder Hippie days. Coot lake is near IBM on 63rd street. As I took off for my evening magic hour of photo shooting I noticed there was very little wind, these are the kind of nights photographers love because lake can be like glass with incredible reflections. When I got to Coot the was a breeze the went up and down, it was a very mellow sunset that produced a very little color and most of it was about 10 minutes after sunset. You never know how it is going to go because it depends on how close the cloud bank is to the Rocky Mountain Continental divide.

Lightning Bolts striking over Coot Lake and the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, Boulder County Colorado. It was known in the late 1970s and early 1980s as the place to swim and sunbathe in the nude. When I first got there the lake was like glass. But then the wind picked up and it started to ripple.
