Cotton Candy Skies

I took Fitz out for a walk after dinner on Tuesday night, and was stopped in my tracks the moment we closed the door behind us. The sky was a bright yellow, with giant tufts of thick clouds in shades of pale pink and orange. Fitz wasn’t as impressed, and kept sassing me whenever I paused to look up at the sky and marvel (apparently peeing was more important). We came back inside and I quickly grabbed my camera and ran back to the corner to snap a few photos. In those short 10 minutes, the colors had changed and brightened and become more saturated and, somehow, more beautiful. I haven’t seen a sky like this since Paris in early summer; I had lunch with my dad’s friend John last week and we both agreed the cloud formations and sunset colors, like virtually everything else, are far more gorgeous in Paris. Well, I think this was Philadelphia’s way of proving us wrong.

  • This is going to sound so plebeian, but I never noticed sunsets until I met your father. In the early evening he would pack dinner in his paniers and set off on a ride around the Drive…..full knowing that I’d follow dinner. Having made almost a complete loop, he would stop on the eastern most lawn, face west, and watch the sunset as he’d take out his Contax cameras and photograph that split second before the sun would set on the western most horizon. The reference would someday be used in a painting…..

  • So beautiful. If you come to Sweden you’ll see this a lot ;) Especially in the summer or early fall.
