Mount Warning reappeared today from beneath yesterday’s smoky, dusty haze. The mountain and ranges looked beautifully clear all day but I decided to wait until sunset before taking my camera outside as the weather turned cold this afternoon. I’ve noticed that a sudden cold snap is often a prediction for a beautiful sunset, and I had a hunch that today could be one of those memorable sky days.
So out I went with my camera just after 5:30 pm. Nothing. Oh, the sky had a pretty pastel sunset tinge of colour over the mountain, but this wasn’t the magnificence sky-show I had expected.
And then I turned around …
Towards the north-western skies, stripes of clouds were lit up by the sunset glow. The sky looked magnificent!
I’m sure I will never understand how weather patterns work, it’s all too technical a process for my simple brain. I am just happy to enjoy the magic – no questions asked – and to follow my hunches when I feel something brewing in the weather. 🙂
