Sunset in Purple and Red, William Pond Park, Carmichael CA (C61_2783-2785-cus-LR-NS-PSa)

As the sun dipped even lower, the predominently blue gave way to purple/magenta as a mix between the blue that was past and the red that was yet to come.


if you look outside and see clouds with some sky in between and a horizon that is not filled with the marine layer, chances are good you'll have a nice sunset (you'll always have sunset... I hope). Look for a frontdrop or as in this case water to reflect the glorious colors. I had scouted out this location on Google Earth a couple of weeks ago, but checking it out was delayed due to the North Coast trip. Today was made to order for the scouting trip! Thanks to Sandy for suggesting we check out the sunset.
