stunning {277/365}

No Bench Monday for me today.  I ran out of daytime and honestly? couldn’t really be bothered with the work of it all.

Yes, I DO get those days too. heh.

But look what I did get …

Autumn Sunset 277/365

The sky tonight turned into stunning oranges, pinks, yellows .. it was crazy brilliant. People were coming out onto the streets to check it out, it was that amazing.

And directly across from the sunset, behind me, was the faintest trace of a complete rainbow.

So bizarre.

Hasn’t rained here at all. Not even a hint of it.

I wonder if the colder temps have anything to do with it all.

Whatever the reason, I’m so glad I happened to be outside to catch it. What a show.  The light from it, skimming over the tops of trees, fields and homes had such a surreal quality.  Almost other-wordly.

A portrait in that light would’ve been pure magic :)

    What does it mean????

    (Sorry. Double rainbow guy got me with your mention of a rainbow.)

    That is beautiful. We had an evening like that two summers ago. I tried to take pictures, but I was still all new and dumb with my camera, so they were grainy and weird.

    This, though? Perfection.

    You are clearly not new and dumb with your camera.
