Red Skies
The brilliant colors of sunrises and sunsets are caused by atmospheric particles refracting light through the atmosphere, called scattering. Blue and violet light “scatters” more easily, lending us to primarily see yellow, orange, and red. Photographer’s Note — “The night this photo was taken I almost did not go to the lake. I got out of work late and knew it was going to get dark in a half hour. However, my dogs love the outdoors and Blue Marsh is their favorite place to go. I figured the lake was just what I needed after a busy day; even if we could only spend a mere 15 minutes there. After arriving at the boat launch, I looked up and witnessed the most amazing sky I had ever seen. I tell this story often and advise people to get outdoors daily!” - Carol Cole
