Glow Before Sunset (Skywatch Friday)


One evening last week, the sky took on a strange yellow-orange glow just before sunset. The color of everything outside, such as these crepe myrtles, intensified as if super-saturated. There was a storm to the northeast, so I'm sure the combination of a setting sun and a moving storm system is responsible for the effect.

The colours both contrast and complement one another. Great photo. Ain't nature wonderful?

The varying shades of pink crepe myrtle flowers against the peachy-pink sky make for a spectacular photo. Well done!
