I rarely get a good vantage of the storms that come through because of how we are situated. Last night, even though it isn’t an awesome shot, it is still kind of impressive because the clouds were ominous looking.
The first of my lilies have started to bloom!
My red dahlia’s petals fade out as they start to die. It creates this really pretty hombre effect. They apparently have a natural glitter to them as well, especially when the light hits them just right.
We were treated with another extremely showy sunset last night. Also with so much pink in the sky it seemed a little unreal.
There was a big difference last night, though. All that gorgeous pink? It was in the east. I’m not sure I’ve ever seen a sky quite like it. On the horizon to the west where the sun set, where you almost always see the most brilliant of colors, only had a low band of paler pink clouds near the horizon. There were some other, fluffy clouds in the area, but they didn’t get tinged and stayed on the white/gray side.
Until you hit about the midway point of the sky looking to the east, then it just got amazing. Those clouds just lit up in these amazing waves of pink across the sky, getting deeper and more vibrant in color the closer you got to the eastern horizon where the clouds were a little thicker.
It was so unusual to see the normal color clouds closer to the sunset like that. There was a somewhat distinct line between where the color was and where it wasn’t.
The above photo is facing west, the first photo is towards the east. I really kept expecting the color to start hitting some of these other clouds, but it never did.
We got that pink tinge to everything again, too. It was like a classic golden hour, except it was pink.
