Sunset Rainbow

Beautiful sky today...

I missed the double rainbow (saw it only when there was a single arc) but I still got to snap some photos of the pink sky. I remember stepping out and thinking for a fleeting second that I had accidentally put on sunglasses – there was such a deep red tint to everything: the sidewalk, the buildings, everything.

A storm hadn't just passed  – it was a sunset rainbow.  They're special because (1) they are the widest arcs you'll ever see from the ground (gah, I need a wide angle lens) and (2) they'll contain more red hues and less blue, which causes the red illumination I was talking about earlier.
