Football Stadium, Colorado

Photograph by Alex Benison

An amazing view of the sun setting behind the Flatirons of the Rocky Mountain front range in Boulder, Colorado. I caught this spectacular fireshow on the roof of the stadium, using five different exposures in a tone-mapping technique similar to the one Ansel Adams developed to capture scenes with high dynamic range.
