Just a few thoughts about this (totally unprocessed) picture:
The sky really was that pink tonight.
I almost missed it; I was taking laundry off the line, and I suddenly looked up and glimpsed the vivid edge of it. I wonder what other marvels I miss by not looking at just the right time?
In order to get this view, I had to run around the back of our garage and climb up onto a low wall that borders the farm next-door. As I angled my camera (and body) to get a better shot, I actually fell off the wall into the hedge. My first thought was to protect my camera . . . which I held aloft even as I hit the dirt. (Thank goodness no one has the photographic evidence of that "moment.")
