This image was sent in by Dr. Breanna A. Symmes who wrote, " The University of Colorado Denver Anschutz Medical Campus features three new research buildings, which soar up into the Denver sky to present a fantastic view of the Colorado Skyline. For those of us lucky enough to sit in the western-most building, we get a direct view of the Rocky Mountains at sunset."
These images, sent in via Reddit, also capture amazing scenes from the Medical Campus.

Dr. Olivia Osborne sent us several amazing images from her lab bench. She wrote in saying, " Day or evening – it’s a lovely view, but I have to admit that my favourite is the sensational sunsets. I have the pleasure of watching a magical, ethereal Californian sunset every day, which makes for a most perfect picture among the urban dystopia that is Los Angeles."

Alternatively, on clear, cold days, low-lying clouds would surround the tops of the mountains. The city isn’t nicknamed ‘raincouver’ for nothing."
