Champagne light

It’s been years since I’ve seen a good champagne sunset, and yesterday’s was a great one. You need a recent downpour, a¬†thick cloud cover overhead¬†and a clear horizon, so the rays of the setting sun reflect off the bottoms of the clouds and fill the air with a diffuse pink light. From about 8:30 p.m. to 8:45 p.m., that’s exactly what we had here in Central New Jersey. Breathtaking.
