Pink Sky at Night – an Ozark Delight

20120618-174553.jpg

These longer days give me lots of time to shoot in the evenings. Friday I was out on a country road and looked to the west to see the sky looking like it was on fire. I focused on the field grass just in front of the fence to capture this image.

It was about 8:00 so I knew I had a short window to drive to a spot with a good vantage point – a downside of living in the Ozarks is that the hills and hollows can block sunrises and sets from view. I went to an overlook built by the local Rotary – I looks out across all of Eureka Springs, Arkansas. I got there as the sky really started to explode with color.

As I headed out the color lingered, too dark to capture – but lighting my way home. I live in paradise.

  2. Amen, my friend – the Ozarks are paradise! Just beautiful photos – the first one of the Crescent is just gorgeous with the light on the porches. We have been catching the early dawn colors across our cove. Love our part of the country! Kathleen

    • Thanks Kathleen, I have shot the crescent from that angle many times during the day, I had no idea they lit it up like that. I live on a hilltop that is heavily wooded near the Missouri line. I can catch a bit of a sunrise – no sunsets.
