We have some of the most beautiful
sunsets here in New Mexico. The sky can blend from a golden yellow orange near
the horizon to a deep royal blue just overhead while the clouds can burn with
electric pinks as the sunís last light skims their undersides and leaves the
upper parts to fade into smoky purples.
Thatís when most people say,
ďShowís over! What a great sunset that was!Ē
But Iíve started to linger just a while longer. The after-show Just
After Sunset is just as beautiful, in a more subtle and gentle way. The
sky fades to the softest of pinks and the clouds, now completely out of the
sunís direct light, switch to shades of light to dark baby blue and float
slowly and gracefully into the night.
