The weather forecast for last night looked spotty, but it turned out on the pretty good side of okay. This image set was taken as twilight deepened on what turned out to be an all-nighter. It is soooo neat to see the evening’s last glow and the first blush of morning and this was a great way to start the night.

Fun stuff.
