au·gust (ô-gst)adj.1. Inspiring awe or admiration; majestic.
This was the sky last night, August 1st, and august it was (pun intended).
Looking outside as it neared 8:00, the blues were strangely vivid and there was a bright yellow glow to things. I grabbed my camera and went out to investigate. The sky was full of colors, the waters a vivid blue, white hulls of boats glowing; it was incredible.
I am especially sensitive to color and absolutely had to be outside for this very pleasing show.
I knew it would be fleeting, so shot quite a few photos, even running back in for a second camera.
As the sun set lower, the colors deepened. I didn’t want it to end.
I brought out the camera with the ability to do panoramas. Click to see them larger.
These colors are all real, as is, out of camera. No manipulation; it really was this beautiful.
