Between 5:19 and 5;24 pm this afternoon, the sky turned on a wonderful display of light, colour, and texture. (No Eagles - they had gone home.)
I noticed the pink light coming through the computer-room window, and rushed out to behold this view from my back deck. This is looking south-east, with the sun setting to my right. It is "washing" the clouds with afternoon light. This is a wide shot to capture the scene fully.
Here is a zoomed in shot, using my "standard lens" (28-80mm).
One minute later, looking north-west, the main feature of the sky was these delightful clouds, just being coloured, against a blue sky background.
And then two minutes later, the setting sun lit up the edge of a dominant dark cloud.
That was an ominous moment, for shortly afterwards, the colour disappeared, and darkness fell upon the world.
And I look back with thanks for the brief but glorious display.
