Christmas Clouds

Uploaded: December 25, 2004


As I was driving to town at sundown (3:30 PM) the sun moved behind a smaller mountain and was shooting a fan-tail ray of red light that was lighting up the clouds. By the time I could find a place to stop the ray was fading. You can see a hint of it spreading out from the bright pink spot directly over the mountain.

Thank you all for your comments and kind Christmas wishes! I hope you all had a great Christmas :-)

Sally; actually it is during the colder winter weather that we always get the pink lighting. The mountain tops are pink very frequently in December thru February when the weather is cold and clear. #1000928
