Sunset Shots at Lake Dillon

Lake Dillon - Search Nearby - Added by Kevin O'Neill

Get amazing sunset shots on the lake. If you bring your waterproof boots you can wade in for photos. There's a series of trail that will take you almost all the way around the lake. Not a bad spot to hang out once you're done. Duration: A couple hours.

To get to the southern end of the lake from Denver, head west on 70 until you reach 9. Take 9 for a few miles until you find the spot on the lake where you want to get started.

On the south side of Lake Dillon, there was an abundance of old stumps lining the beach, which would occasionally drift into the cool water. I originally spotted them in the winter and knew I had to come back when all the ice had melted. Fortunately, I was met with some beautiful clouds that evening that made for an awesome sunset on the lake.

If you're as lucky as I was, you brought a pair of water shoes with you. My wife had recently bought me some new water shoes that I just had to give a try. Take a look around the beach and once you find a good spot to wade into, you'll get a completely different perspective. The sky will do all the rest.

Some Of The Best Sunsets I've Seen!

Of course depending on the day and where you are on the lake you can see crazy sunsets!

In the right conditions this can be a beautiful spot to photograph. Human elements surround the majority of the lake so if you're not into that you'll have to work for compositions.
