It Was Pink Outside Last Night

I’ve said before that central PA gets some of the best light I’ve ever seen. I don’t know if it’s a consequence of latitude…or air pollution or…what, I don’t know. I just know that the light around here is regularly ethereal. So I shouldn’t have been surprised last night when I opened the door to look for the cat. The sky was clearing after a little cloudburst of rain, and it was that anything-can-happen time just before sunset. But I admit, I was surprised. Because it was pink outside.


Like, did I just open the door into an impressionist painting or what?

Here’s what it was like. The photos are unretouched in any way.

Le chat.

Le chat.

See? It’s all rosy and I swear, totally #nofilter.

Check out the clouds.

First through the trees. For suspense.

First through the trees. Because I’m building suspense.

And then…

Over the top of my neighbor's crazy Dr. Seuss tree.

Over the rooftops.

Over the rooftops.



And then I turned around and…

Dig it.

Dig it.

Seriously. It felt surreal. Which isn’t a bad thing but, by definition, not what one tends to expect.

      Hahaha! Is that where LA is? 🙂 Very nice. I don’t know if I’ve ever seen light quite that color, but man, it was pretty. Enjoy your pretty light too! Thanks for the comment.

    The post-storm sky was indeed beautiful! Thanks for capturing it.
    That storm was CRAZY. A fierce gust of wind whipped through my porch and SHREDDED THE SHADE I HAD HANGING TO PIECES. It was an amazing thing to see! Yikes!

      Really? Dang! I know the storm blew through; I was working on the gym thing and suddenly the upstairs room was like three shades more shadowy. But still. Once it cleared…pink! Crazy.
