Window to Color

Window to Color

Twilight on the High Plains can be an experience simultaneously soothing and awe-inspiring. We had finished a grand day of storm observing and photography, and were headed for Cheyenne and food and lodging.  Quickly, a window of splendor opened in convective clouds to our southwest.  Then nearly as rapidly, another window closed, unseen in the northwestern sky behind the heavy shadows overhead.  The colors dimmed and the glows faded to night.  Another fleeting moment of atmospheric uniqueness passed, blessing the few fortunate enough to bear witness in appreciative marvel.
