It was an unusual evening the other night, with dark charcoal gray skies and distant lightning. I was watching the lightning strikes from the dark porch when the Organ Mountains were suddenly lit with a long strip of red light, reflected from the sun just below the horizon. I ran for my camera and watched what happened next.
I had been sure that we were long past any sunset activity, but the stormy skies had made it difficult to know just the moment that the sun went down. The sun wasn't through with us for that day, however. Everything turned this wonderful rosy color.
To finish up the amazing show, the gray skies did their best for a comeback, giving this sky-blue-pink effect as the city lights were slowly coming on.
