My choice for Ruby Tuesday this week is an unusual ruby pink sunset and the change in hue wrought by the unusual sky. The picture sequence has a date stamp of August 22, 2003 and is taken from the view to the east, outside our roost in the Ansonia Uplands. Pink is the only descriptor I can think of here, as magenta seems darker, dusty rose being too pale. I can only guess that the skies are cloudy
to the east but with a dazzling sunset to the west, although I am unable to find a capture...
What really works here is the effect of the skies on our vehicles. It is a subtle pink glow to our vehicles. The Hyundai color is called Champagne, but the dark pinkupstairs has turned the car a sort of dusty rose.
Likewise, my van that Ford calls Light Saddle, and the pink glow is drawn to the backside of the large van. So the pinksky by itself is a beauty, but offers a pastel ruby where one did not exist. The visual change barely exists, but the character change is noticeable. Follow the link to Mary's great meme!
