This evening a little after five p.m. I looked up and saw an unusual amount of color in the eastern sky.  This is the direction in which I usually photograph sunrises. sunset eastWe had a neighbor in Maine who lived on a point and could measure a sunset by how far around the circle of her view there was color.  Tonight’s was nearly a 360.   There was color both north and south.

It was as if the sun had decided to make a big splash because it had such a short work day.  Which is utter nonsense, of course.  But it was beautiful, and seemed a good omen for the new season of moving slowly into more light.   Here is the main show, a little bit south of west, seen over our roof.P1000323
