Awestruck

Last night brought with it one of the strangest skies I have ever seen.

Typically I think of sunsets as something viewed on the horizon, something at a distance.

Not this sunset.
It was like you were in its midst, and it was enveloping you. It was heavy, with a rich orange hue saturating the environment.

Except for when you turned around and it was violet with a rainbow forming…at 8:30 at night.

And this was the sky above my house when I got home.

I couldn’t help but repeatedly gasp. Photos simply do not do it justice. It was an experience I won’t likely forget for a very long time. Positively surreal.
