Today was another of those curious day’s with a sky that was fairly inscrutable. Some stars here, but lots of clouds too. The horizon looked like it would be another of those days where a cloud bank buries the eastern sky. But there was some hope with a few openings here and there and before I knew it…the sky above Quabbin Hill was brilliantly illuminated with orange, crimson and purple, bathing the water in darker tones of red and magenta. I know I’ve shared several of what some folks describe as “nuclear” skies but this tops them all, I think.
BTW, shortly after this shot, the sky did close up for a while, long enough to hide the actual sunrise. Luck was with me. 🙂
