As I raced down to the boat launch at the Delaney Project to photograph last night’s amazing sunset, I was bowled over by this view. It looked like the woods had erupted in flame. These white pines along Harvard Road seemed ready to ignite at any minute.
I looked out the window at 6PM this evening and saw a pink wisp of clouds to the north, catching the light of the setting sun. I grabbed my camera and ran to Delaney, where a spectacular sunset display of reds and yellows was reflected in the water. A motorcyclist had his camera phone out, and as I took photos another neighbor drove up and jumped out with his camera.
We watched in awe for about 5 minutes, and then it was gone.
